It's very windy day up there, so bring along plenty of warm clothing. The blowing snow across the fields down in the valley is throwing some snow across the roads as well so drive carefully as you can get temporary white outs with the big gusts. The roads are a bit icy too so take that in to account as well. Expect strong winds from the North West with stronger gusts up on the slopes. Broken cloud with sunny patches and snow flurries through out the day. Temperatures will warm with sun but the wind looks like it will keep things chilly up top.

The runs are hard packed groom and perfect for FAST carving, especially because there aren't many people up on them at present. You may encounter upper lift closures as Goryu already have closed some upper lifts and the Gondola.

** AVALANCHE WARNING MODERATE **
Natural Avalanches unlikely. Human triggered avalanches possible.
Use caution in steep terain especially around rocky outcrops, cornices and convexing rolls on unsupported slopes.
A crust covers most of the mountains right now but there are pockets of wind deposited snow in gullies and leaward slopes. Be careful of instability in this layer especially with increasing snow over the January 14th, rain crust. There is some faceting taking place beneath the rain crust as well that is also a concern. Do not be under the assumption that the crust means that the slopes are bomb proof. There is a possibility that avalanches may be set off in the areas described above especially when combined with solar radiation or intense wind loading. Be cautious out there.
