Happy New Year!

Finally, we got a decent snowfall! There was snow falling yesterday afternoon and last night which has really helped to get things back on track. The forrest areas are begining to accumulate some lovely soft powder, although there is a very hard base underneath. This morning the Rinkan and Hanazono forrest areas have been tracked out very quickly, but there are still many out of the way areas that haven't. The black bump run (Super) under the Ace Quad #2 is a bit treacherous - the bumps are very pronounced and the cover varies from soft, deep sluff to rock hard ice.

The deep low that passed over us has moved north, but it looks like it will strenghten by tomorrow and we will get more cold air in the next couple of days. Last nights snowfall was great, but we need a few more days of that to repair what was lost during the last week of December. Don't let the rising snow depth fool you, the quality of the off-piste riding is not as good as it was prior to last week, but it is better than last week.

The avalanche report warns against riding the base of the valleys in off-piste areas.

All lifts are operating.
