Good afternoon from Naeba everybody and apologies for the late update today.

Well things are not great out there today. Whilst the rain did hold off for most of yesterday temperatures were still far to warm and we have lost a large amount of our snow due to that. We have sporadic light rain today although temperatures have dropped a fair amount so there is a reasonable chance of snow later on.

In general the skiing is still OK but only on the specific trails which are being maintained by the ski resort.

Today as well we have restricted opening in the ski resort due to unsafe conditions on some of the recently opened trails.

The forecast is still predicting snow for the next couple of days. Everyone please keep your fingers and toes crossed that this comes through!

UPDATE:
As of 13:00 today the rain has turned to light sleety snow.
