The sun was out in force today with midday temperatures climbing to 5 deg C with no wind and a bluebird sky. It was nice to see the sun after 3 days of snow and some strong winds brought around 100cm of fresh snow to Minakami.

Tomorrow the snow returns but the valley may get a short spell of rain around midday while the upper resorts should escape with wet snow. Temperatures look set to rise again on Wed and Thurs but the next cold front should hit Minakami on Friday bringing more fresh snow.

The recent rollercoaster of temperatures and high winds is creating a number of weak layers in the snowpack. Think carefully about terrain choices!
