24 Hour Recap
The snow has been falling lightly but consistently for the past 24 hours and temperatures have remained very cold.

Today’s Picks
Head to Downhill Central on the Onsen side this morning for an introduction to Japanese powder or Champion A and B for some steeps.

Weather Outlook
We’re still in a bit of an arm wrestle between the cold northerly and warmer westerly winds. For today we’ll have northerlies but by tomorrow it looks like the westerlies will be back in charge. A bit of a mixed bag over the next four days and it really could go either way. There’s plenty of moisture around so if we can score a bit of cold northerly air we’ll get more snow.
