Windy but plenty on nice snow sums up the report today.

The winds have arrived as forecast and have increased from light to moderate this morning in the village. I expect the situation to be gusty up on the mountain, particularly in the exposed areas. Tomorrow the winds will reduce a little before increasing again on Sunday to strong levels, and then reducing by Monday morning.

We have been blessed by snow again overnight and I have recoreded another 6cm in the village, so there will be some pretty decent depths on the ski area itself. It is currently snowing moderately and we expect the snow fall to continue through the day.

Temperatures are pretty mild with -4c recorded at base level this morning, but it has already warmed up a couple of degrees since then. So not a particularly cold day, but the wind will definitely have an effect and a face mask would be a handy item to have in your pocket.

There are ski competitions on Kitanomine at the moment and the following courses are closed:

Giant until 6/Feb
Azelia 3-6/Feb
Junior 3-6/Feb
