Snow and more snow. And wind. It continues to snow. Since yesterday up to 50cm being reported (Cortina), with an average of up to 30cm around the village. It's certainly coming down this weekend. The trees are laden with snow and we feel right slap bang in the middle of winter. Let this feeling continue, especially as we are fast approaching March.

Wind is affecting resorts. Happo is basically only lower lifts this morning as I write this, and the top lifts at Goryu are also on hold. Cortina has it's Number 4 and 5 lifts closed and related courses, due to avalanche risk, so all the goodies out there aren't accessible this morning. Hakuba 47 seems like it has most of it's area open this morning and so perhaps a good choice in terms of open terrain.

It's -7 degrees at village level with a moderate wind here and it doesn't look like it's going to calm down much for the day today.

Very dangerous avalanche conditions with all this new snow piling up. Please see yesterdays message and do take care.

The storm should begin easing off tomorrow and if you are keen to see the sun, Tuesday might be a good idea to get up there. Possible bluebird.
