Isn't Cortina shut?Great conditions at TSG this morning with the pow on the groomers being on a much softer base that in the trees and definitely the better option early. Good times with a minimal crowd whilst the sheep went to Cortina as usual. On the flip side the lift companies are particularly frustrating this year with lifts opening late nearly every day. Its simply not good enough.

11 January Avalanche note:
Lots of cracking in 50-70cm of storm snow on the rain crust being reported from around 1600m-1900m yesterday. Similar conditions may also be found at other elevations. Cracking in snow ahead of a skier is closely correlated with dangerous avalanche conditions. Don't try and outsmart the snowpack. Simple reliable fact: there is a thick warm crust from rain with a rapid load of storm deep storm snow on top. Also do not assume that rain crusts become more stable with time. Sometimes they do not. Sometimes they become less stable. Do not trust crusts on steep terrain.

If you want something up Tsugaike way, have a look at Backcountry Lodge Hakuba. The owners Eric and Fumie are the most lovely people going around. Contact them direct to see what availability and rates they have.Hi Guys, Going to do a last minute trip to Hakuba 4-10th Feb. I'm looking for a recommendation for cheap accommodation - that may still be available. I was thinking about Tsugaike but no real preference. I will be there with my 18 y.o. daughter who has two weeks skiing experience. looking on booking.com and am hoping to match a name with something that is available.
