Cold morning with 5 cm of new snow.
A ski patrol told me that they are trying to open the top lifts and some gate (maybe gate 4) today. If the top lifts open, there are so many untouched snow. Bamboo and bushes are still trying to catch you, please ride carefully.
It will be mostly cloudy but it will snow lightly tonight.
