Good morning from Naeba! It's a snowy start here, with light snow falling at the base of the mountain. Sadly, it is insufficient to accumilate, but we can hold out hope for the top of the mountain. From about 1300m, the mountain is shrouded in a thick fog, so visibility up at the top will be limited. The air temperature is far cooler than it has been, as the wind has swung around to the north again bringing in this cold air. We can expect the light snow to continue throughout today. The pistes will likely be quite hard this morning, but with the fresh snow on top they should soften up as the day goes on.

Looking forwards, the wind is predicted to swing back to the south and strengthen tomorrow first thing, increasing the air temperature to just about freezing at the base. Snow is predicted for tomorrow, but this precipitation will turn to rain on Wednesday at 900m elevation. Air temperatures are currently predicted to push up comfortably above freezing also. Fortunately, this preciptation is predicted to fall as snow at higher elevations. As the weekend arrives, we can expect clear skies again, with some more sunny spring skiing on the cards.
