Good Morning!

It's rather dark and cloudy in Naeba this morning. The forecast predicted that the clear and calm conditions we have been experiencing for most of the week would not change until Sunday, however it's look as though things have moved in a sooner than was expected. Currently there are low light conditions at the base, with a layer of thick cloud hanging around towards the top of the ski hill. This could indicate there is a chance of light rain/sleet/snow later in the day, however this should ease off into the night with a break from the precipitation through Sunday. The temperature currently is expected to be above 0°C for most of today, remaining warm overnight and into tomorrow. The pistes are likely to be a little hard this morning, but hopefully the warmth will soften them up after lunch time.

Looking forwards, we have a significant snow storm system predicted to roll into town on Monday morning, with the heaviest snowfall being spread across Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. The 6-day forecast shows no sign of this storm letting up as of yet. Temperatures are expected to remain well below 0°C for the duration of the snow storm.

Dragondola starting the season from this morning connecting Naeba with Kagura.

It's been a week now since a significant dump of snow, so a new storm system coming through for Christmas is an exciting prospect, and it's still very early in the season.

Exciting!
