A very frosty -10 in the village this morning, blue sky with high wispy clouds - naeba is fully visible. Not much to report on on the snow front.. about 5 cm since yesterdays report.

Last nights snowballs where not having it - That is to say they were crumbling before they even left the hand... so it's been a cold fluttering of snow in the last 24.

Ventured up to the top of Naeba yesterday, couldn't see a thing up top, but it was surprising how much more snow had fallen up there compared to the village level - Just goes to show that if I'm reporting 20cm down here at Asagai, it's a likely 30cm+ up there! - Lot's of powder up there yesterday - and there'll sure to be more today. After descending to the bottom of the green snake run which meets at the top of the gun barrel ( or 'challengy' as it is known), the visibility cleared up and then it was all about the gun barrel run - stacked with snow - all up the sides and everywhere - some good jumps and little hits to ride over if your up for that kind of thing.... In general the terrain is very different from most years due to the low snow base - Although this is making off gelande runs a little saucy with the trees and undergrowth, it certainly makes it more interesting with all the little divots and small launch-off lips - nothing is filled in with stacks of powder you see.

So you see, whilst it may have been a poor start to the season, it has opened up a completely different experience in the riding up here this season... The terrain is different, very different. More exciting and gnarly I'd say!

It's Friday!!!! Think we're going to Kampai the winter sports tonight! - especially skiing and snowboarding!!
