The system bringing the snow over the last few days has moved on but it did go out with a bang dumping 20-30cm through yesterday and last night. Today has not exactly dawned with bluebird conditions as was forecast but it is a lot clearer than it was and the summit of Youtei was almost visible earlier.

A high pressure system has ridged out from China and is passing through Honshu today. As it moves to the west it will direct a mild southerly airstream over us and later today we should see temps getting slightly above freezing for the first time in many days. Tomorrow we are still expecting a little rain which should turn to snow into Thursday. At least we now have a very good base which shouldn't be too badly affected by the rain.

So today will be the last chance to enjoy the powder for at least a couple of days so make sure you get out there!
