It's cool, fresh start to the day in Naeba today, with the air temperature reading -6°C. We had a little snow later in the afternoon yesterday, which continued to fall into the late evening, however accumulation was limited to 8cm. The pistes have certainly benefited from the top up, however a good dump of fresh snow is what's needed to really liven things up. As for today's weather so far, there is no precipitation...yet! But the wind is slowly picking up indicating we could expect "Storm Finn" to arrive later in the afternoon. We should expect a little snow overnight again tonight and for temperatures to hover just below 0°C.

Looking forwards, there is a significant shift in the weather patterns we have been seeing over the past couple of weeks. Firstly, the temperature is expected to plummet down to as low as -15°C at the base on Saturday night, and day time highs are expected to be around -9°C. This, coupled with any wind chill, means that any snow which is falling is going to stay in fantastic condition. The snow accumulation predicted currently for "Storm Finn" is totaling 98cm at the base. Now, of course this predicted number will fluctuate as the week goes on, however that is a healthy figure to start the storm off. Of course, a far greater accumulation is expected higher up on the peaks. Coupled with this snow fall, we can expected some brisk winds, with the worst of these passing through on Thursday and Friday. It's great to be welcoming winter back into Mikuni valley!

Yuki!
