Snow storm conditions here this morning with snow falling and a strong wind blowing about too. That is making it harder to see how much snow has actually fallen, but in the few places I usually measure I have 7cm so far - the resort is this morning reporting 10cm. We should be getting more during most of the day today, so let's see how much we can amass...

From tomorrow a few days of clearer sunnier skies are on the forecast. Hopefully it will remain pretty cold as well keeping the snow in good condition.

It is the Madarao Fire Festival is on Saturday (7th January) and starts at 8pm. There'll be lots of festivities going on including food and drink, fireworks from 9pm and 'taimatsu' (torch lit skiing) from 9:05pm. Let's hope for clearer weather for the event.
