The snow continues.

It's powder all over the place this morning.

A quick round up of what the reports are reporting in terms of new snowfall since yesterday:

15-35cm at Goryu
20-40cm at Hakuba 47
45-60cm at Hakuba Cortina (including the 10-15cm they were reporting during the day yesterday)

Not bad for a day's snow!

Other resorts who don't share such information are similarly seeing jumps in their snow depths.

It's -7 degrees in village and close to -11C at Usagidaira on Happo. Winds not as prevelant as we thought they would be this morning - at 1400m on Happo an average wind speed of 0.8m/s with a strong of 2.4m/s as of 9am.

Visibility will be poor out on the slopes today pretty much everywhere and a look round the webcams confirms this. Best visibility at the low Minekata! So now fantastic mountain views today, but some fine snow conditions.

The heavy snow brings with it increasingly dangerous avalanche conditions especially out of bounds. The usual rules and common sense apply. Take care out there. There'll be plenty of untouched excellent powder on the resort runs this weekend and no need to contemplate straying.

By tomorrow the snow should beging ease off and there's a chance the sun might make an appearance as well. In the coming week clearer skies look to be on the cards more than snow.
