We woke this morning with smiles on our face as we finally saw some snow falling. At this stage its not quite enough to add to the snow depth but at least it will be a coating to cover the icy conditions and some of the pitting in the snow.

Though the upper mountain temp hasn't changed much over the last couple of days it certainly feels colder this morning.

The Rinkan course on the Kitanomine side has now opened giving a great option for beginners to explore.

So for the rest of the day we may see the odd splatter of snow coming through the clouds before heating up tomorrow.
