Good morning from Naeba everybody!

Well the weather forecast has come through for us today and delivered what was promised. An almost perfect bluebird day with lovely soft groomers all over the mountain. There are exactly two clouds in the sky today and they are those lovely white fluffy ones, not those foreboding storm clouds.

Whilst we did get around 30 cm of fresh snow during the day yesterday it did not snow continuously through the night meaning that most of the mountain has been groomed pretty well this morning. Powder should still be possible to find though if you know where to look.

Looking on we are meant to get some light snow starting again as of tonight with another storm rolling in on Friday night.

Sweet!
