We have a perfectly clear bluebird day today at Madarao.
The groomers will be magnificent early and there is still plenty of fresh high quality powder in the trees for those prepared to go hunting.
The Snowball Chalet and Shaggy Yak team are heading into the back country today with North Nagano Outdoor Sports the local guiding company.
We will make sure we share lots of the pics of our imminent mission.
There is a very light snow forecast for this evening. It doesn't look like it will top up the resort in any significant way but we shall see.
