A quiet day up at Yamabiko yesterday
Beautiful spring skiing is how you could describe yesterday’s conditions. The snowpack softened over the day under the warmth of the sun, though the slopes stayed fast all day long above 1100m. Lower down the snow started feeling slower in the afternoon, but hopefully a fairly cold night has hardened the snowpack up a bit.
Today’s looking like it’ll be a bluebird day with temperatures warming up to 4°C. Winds should be mild and the views should be awesome. you may be able to see the coastline in the distance from up at Yamabiko. Temperatures will stay warm through until tomorrow, though the skies will be cloudy with the possibility of rain. The mercury should drop again from Saturday, becoming colder early into next week. It looks like the cold temperatures will also bring us some snow!
Enjoy the bluebird today, It’s going to be a good one.
