I have to get myself off to Nagano early this morning so it's an early quick report from me today. Sorry it can't be more in-depth.

Not the most friendly of early morning conditions here with wind and kind of wet conditions with a mix of rain, sleet or snow depending on where you are. The wind will surely be affecting lifts are resorts even though it doesn't actually feel windy outside my place just now; info updated as much as possible at this early hour below.

Please check with resorts if you plan to get out this morning.

Looking forward to some good decent proper snow later on and tomorrow. Bring it on, as they say - hope for a nice report tomorrow morning.
