Good morning from Naeba!

It's still snowing here and it's showing no sign of clearing yet. The snow is much lighter than it has been, and the cloud base has lifted significantly improving visibility. It's still moderately breezy out there so be prepared for a cool day and the possibility of some lifts being placed on standby. The pistes are still fresh and fun, with some pockets of powder hidden around and about.

The forecast looking forwards is for this storm system, "Claudia", to clear the valley today and for the weather to let up until Monday evening. We are expecting lower wind speeds, slightly warmer temperatures and less precipitation during this period. However, on Monday it's looking as though we will be diving straight into "Storm Dougle" with snow predicted to continue from Monday well into next week.

Jaakuna!
