After a slightly warm afternoon yesterday much of the snow at the village level has melted now, with patches of ground showing through. The depth of snow ino the village is now around 10cm.

It is a slightly cloudy day today with pacthes of blue sky and currently a mild temperature of 4 deg C. It looks like it will warm up towards noon, similar to yesterday and be another cold night.

The weekend is looking very promising for snow with an occluded front moving in from mainland Asia that is expected to bring a decent dump of snow from Saturday to Monday.

Houdaigi is the pick of fields in Minakami at present, with all lifts operating and a decent covering of snow. Norn ski area still only has onbe lift operating and Oana is looking more like a grass ski area after yesterdays warmer temperatures.

The backcountry is still a long way from being enjoyable, with many small trees still exposed and creeks still flowing. A good 2 - 3 meters of snow is required to fill things in. If you are going backcountry watch out for hidden creeks and trees and remeber to take your Avi gear and a friend!
