Good morning from Naeba!

As I type there is a patch of orange sunrise on the upper reaches of the mountain, however low cloud is moving about the valley and intermittently blocking the sun completely. Visibility is poor above this cloud level and this is forecast to hang around for most of the day today. There may be a little precipitation, but this is forecast to be high in elevation and just a centimeter or two. The pistes were topped up with 26cm of fresh snow just 2 days ago, so piste conditions are mostly excellent with patches of hard pack to be aware of.

The forecast tomorrow is indicating the skies will clear up for blue bird conditions through until Sunday, with what looks to be a significant storm rolling into town on Sunday night - I'm dreaming of a white Christmas! Temperatures will continue to rise throughout the week, again with Sunday currently being forecast as unusually warm for this time of year.

Mixed!
