A fine day yesterday and this morning it is bright but there is more cloud around and less blue sky to see above the mountain.

It's another cold and calm morning though and no new snow to report.

Some people have apparently been asking about the conditions of the Ice Monsters. Rain that we had earlier in the month spoilt them somewhat unfortunately and so I get the feeling that this season the Juhyo peak conditions are going to have been the last part of January when they were in really excellent condition. Though I would happily be proved wrong!
