Tuesday 22nd December 2009

Sick conditions over the last few days with something for everyone and a much deserved powder hit taken by those in need.

The sky came out a bit today and morning groomers with chopped (or not) powder off the sides is better than a coffee any day of the Winter. It looks like clouds are forecast to come in this avo with some light snow possible. Wind is strong up top and at last report the Happo Alpen lift was still closed due to strong wind.

More of the same forecast for tomorrow with the sun poking his head out Christmas Eve hopefully, also temperatures look a little higher (low zeros to 6/8) over Christmas.

Observed snow over the past 24hrs: 5cms (at Happo Base)

Currently open: Sun Alpina, Sanosaka, Goryu, Hakuba 47, Happo-One, Iwatake, Tsugaike, Cortina.
