The winds have arrived as forecast and they are very strong at the moment. There is plenty of horizontal snow shooting past my window right now making it hard to see much in the distance. There has been 7cm of new snow overnight, but on the slopes it will be hit and miss, as there will be areas of powder and others where the wind has stripped the snow away. Variable will be the word of they day.

The ski area has already announced Kitanomine Gondola will not operate. It is possible other lift operations will be affected by the wind, so best to check with the resort for the latest information.

The wind will decrease but still be strong by afternoon, and then increase again by tomorrow morning.
