Snow continues to fall lightly and accumulate and as the base depth on the skifields slowly increases there has been some mad powder out there for those who love it and some fantastic conditions on groomed runs.

Woke up to good amounts of snow on the cars again today and Goryu are reporting around 15cm on top and an increase to base depth of 10cm meaning 20-30cm since yesterday morning.

It's good to see that all of the Happo-one resort is now open and Tsugaike reporting a whopping 240cm of snow up top. Can't be bad!

Though snow is forecast through today/tonight tomorrow night looks like the bumper one and no doubt skifields will be packed over the New Years weekend as people are rolling into town already for the holidays.

If you're coming up here for New Years make sure you have tall boots for wading around in the snow and if you're driving bring a 4WD with snow tyres as cars are slipping all over the place.
