Apologies for the lateness of today's report.

The morning started off cloudy and then we were hit with a period of strong sun breaking through the clouds, and now back to full cloud cover. The upper part of the mountain is eveloped by light cloud so there will be some compromise in visibility high up, but in general it is still good.

Light snow has been continually falling, although it is really only the lightest of flurries at the moment. There was 2cm accumulation overnight.

The forecast for the next few days is for continuos light snow, with a heavier fall on Saturday evening. Strong winds are on the radar for Sunday morning, bit these should pass by Sunday afternoon.

There are quite a few course closures on the Kitanomine side at the moment, or coming up soon. These are for junior high school ski competitions, so it may be worth taking a break and to see how good these young athletes can ski the poles courses. It certainly inspires me to up my game!

The course closures are as follows:
Giant until 6/Feb
Dynamic until 2/Feb
Azelia 3-6/Feb
Junior 3-6/Feb
