Current Conditions
Light snow is falling in the village this morning with light winds and the temperature is sitting around -2 degrees.

24 Hour Recap
We had plenty of sunshine yesterday morning before the clouds rolled in in the afternoon. Cold temps last night and we picked up a few cm of snow overnight.

Today’s Picks
Head to elegant today for a cruisy beginner run through the Sugi tree forests. For something a bit faster head over to Hotel Main, B and C on the Kanko side. Hotel A, Champion A and Mogul challenge are still pretty icy and bumpy so it might be best to wait until the next big dump before tackling them.

Weather Outlook
It looks as though we should pick up a few cm this morning and another 20 cm this afternoon and tonight. A bit of light snow Friday, Saturday and Sunday before temps rise a little on Monday and we could pick up a bit of sleet in the village. The good news is that cold northerlies take over pretty quick and we’re looking at 50+cm of dry snow on Monday and Tuesday. We’re still four days away from this though so models may change.
