A little late out of the gate this 2nd of January (sorry!), but some business about that kept me from letting you know about a little more fresh snow, and the current and often changing conditions at the ski areas.

Interesting day today for temperatures, meaning they are really inconsistent. It's about 0°C here at the Akakan base area, with an overnight low around -2°C (if the new unit can be trusted entirely, but looks good). As I've said before, we're doing serious snow research here for our dear readers! No sticking a finger in the wind and guessing on boot height for you; we use instruments and a real testing protocol. (So don't complain when we report more or less than you think it should be. Grin).
