by Mark on February 9, 2016

Base at top: 150 cm

Temp at Top: -9 Degrees

Base at Uenotaira: 120 cm

New Snow since close: 0 cm       

Weather: cloudy skies with some blue patches, possible snow later

After a beautiful and mild bluebird day on the slopes yesterday, the skies are looking much cloudier today. The forecast is telling us that we may see between 25-30cm of snow today, though there are still some blue patches in the sky and no sign of snowflakes yet. Our fingers are crossed! Winds will be picking up fairly fast today to reach speeds of 55 km/h. We won’t feel it so much in the village, but up the top it’s going to be cold and windy today. The strong winds may continue into Wednesday as well, hopefully not blowing away any fresh snow that’s landed. Thursday is looking much like yesterday, blue skies all around. Who’s looking forward to another bluebird day?

Although it’s still four days away, The weekend isn’t looking too exciting, with temperatures rising above zero and some rain predicted to fall. Hopefully the snowpack will hold strong through the warmer temps as there is a nice lot of snow predicted to come after the weekend once the temperatures drop.
