Good morning from Naeba! It's an overcast morning here in Naeba, and with a moderate wind and low visibility it's feeling very wintery in the Mikuni valley. The very light snow that is falling will likely continue for the remainder of today, with the wind remaining consistent. The air temperature is reading -4°C at the base, however with the brisk wind it's feeling quite chilly out there. With a small accumulation of 5cm of fresh snow, the pistes are in good condition today.

Looking forwards, we can expect the light snow to continue only until tomorrow morning, when the skies are expected to clear in the afternoon. The wind will also drop off significantly tomorrow. Winter will be back on Saturday, with strong winds predicted in the evening, accompanied by moderate snowfall. Accumulations are expected to be approximately 20+cm, meaning this could be a good chance to get the powder skis out again. Along with this block of moist air moving through, air temperatures are expected to plummet, with overnight highs of -9°C predicted on Saturday night. The snow is expected to persist until Monday evening.
