May 4, 2013



Another amazing day yesterday, not much crust recovery so the skiing changed quickly.


There were a few clouds to the North East.


At 2240 meters the temperature was +4, winds were 10-20 KPH NNE. At 1550 meters the temperature was +8, no new snow to report there overnight, with a 185 cm base. In the valley it was +3. Observations taken at 07:00 Hrs.

For the forecast the ridge of high pressure is forming a Rex Block Pattern. Sun and warn temperatures will continue into next week. An onshore flow may change the forecast for Tuesday, more on that tomorrow.
