It was a good day to be on carving skis yesterday. The cooler temperatures made for hard and icy conditions, great for fast carving runs but not so good if you prefer soft powder.

Today brings more of the same, with no new snow and temperatures just bellow freezing. The cooler overnight temperatures will have made grooming easier and conditions on piste will be fast and firm. There is a little bit of soft snow up top, but from 1000m it is replaced with breakable crust, making for difficult skiing. The clouds are hanging around Yoichi-dake this morning and are forecast to clear throughout the day.

Looking forwards, it will get worse before it gets better. With another warm snap combined with precipitation threatening to bring rain mid week, before a return to snowfall later in the week.
