Overcast skies mean it is a rather grey looking day. Temperatures were very cold early on but have risen rapidly in the morning and are now sitting above freezing at village level.

The courses still have good coverage even though we havent seen much in the way of fresh snow over the last few days. The good news is that from Thursday afternoon through to Friday night moderate snow is on the forecast. Unfortunately it currently looks like there will be some rain mixed in with the snow, but lets hope that the temperatures remain cold enough to prevent the rain hitting. After that, from Saturday through to Monday continuous light snow is forecast, so things are looking reasonably positive for the rest of the week.

The following courses are expected to be open today:
Technical
Panorama
Spies
Sailer
Prince
Todomatsu
Link Course
Rinkan Course
