It was all about the early morning lines today...some good snow overnight, woke up to 30-40 cms to shovel off the car and out of the carpark which got me pretty excited especially as snow was still falling early this morning. It wasn't quite what I hoped for up there though...the snow had started falling as rain in the valley by 9:30 and though it wasn't raining hard it was enough to damper the spirits a bit. This precipitation was falling as light rain even at the top of Goryu and is still falling lightly...enough to wet the snow up. Hard to get amped up in the gondola with the sound of raindrops tapping the roof. There's plenty of powder out there, just a bit wet and heavy around this side of town today as the temperatures are just not low enough. At our weather station near Happo-ike it's currently -0.5...not cold for mid-February that's for sure.

That said the rains not falling hard so we shouldn't see any streaking like the last rain caused. Temperatures will drop overnight and everyone's calling for tomorrow to be the business with minus temps all day. Next week looks set to warm up again so make the most of tomorrow...
