The future looks promising

Base at top:  45 cm

Temp at Top; -2 Degrees

Base at Uenotaira  45 cm

New Snow since close: 15 cm       

Weather; Cloudy, foggy

Yesterday was cloudy up the top but wasn’t as cold as it looked. I think that we’ll be grateful for the capsule chairlifts soon once it starts getting really cold. There was consistent moderate snow through yesterday afternoon which added a little bit more to our base and kept the slopes a bit softer throughout the day. We woke up to rain in the village this morning but looking up to the mountains  we can see the snow line at about 300m above the village. The report is showing 15cm of fresh overnight up top

We’re expecting a nice three days of snowfall starting on Christmas Eve and getting heavier towards boxing day evening. The total over the three days is looking like it’ll be around 56cm! The extended forecast looks like it’ll clear up after the 27th but stay cold for the following couple of days.

Stay warm over the coming days!
