Wednesday 30th December 2009

Weather conditions: Overcast with high cloud
New snowfall: 0 cm
Snow depth: 120 cm (Goryu base) 185 cm (Goryu top)
Overcast all day today with no fresh snow to speak of but groomers in great condition and plenty of people on the slopes lapping up the runs pre-New Years. If everyone here gets their way that is the right thing to be doing before kicking back and watching it puke outside as we are all hoping the weather forecast for the upcoming week delivers a payload to match the last storm which are still in appreciation of!

Base depths have not changed a lot since the snowfall and some of the resorts have their snow-makers going boot to floor through the nights keeping bases covered.

With New Years tomorrow resorts will be packed over the weekend; enjoy and hopefully you get snowed in here and can’t leave!
