A very good morning to you all from Naeba everybody.

Powder! This is definitely the word for today! With over 2 meters of snow fall within the last week and 30cm+ in the last 24 hours there is no lack of fresh powder to be had. For sure today is the day to get your powder board or fat boy skis out!

Conditions are soft, surfy and buttery out there!

It is worth noting that Naeba Ski Area is only reporting 20cm of fresh snow today compared to my observed 30cm, as well as yesterday where they posted between 50-70cm whereas I felt the true number was 80cm. These differences are likely to happen as sometimes it can be difficult to pin point exactly how much snow has fallen as measurements can vary a lot depending on exactly where the measurement is taken.

In general though please be re-assured that when I take a measurement I always strive to take it in a place that fairly reflects the actual snow fall. E.g. I don't find a pile of snow that has been created by the wind etc.

Looking on the weather forecast is for heavy snow until Tuesday. A short break and then heavy snow again as of Friday.

Yep! Yep! Yep! Yep! Yep!
