Not that much going on down at village level for the most part, coming down nicely at one point yesterday evening, but better news higher up on the mountains. Yesterday Happo was reporting 20+cm of nice quality dry fresh snowfall up around Kurobishi and Usagidaira. There's snow down by the side of roads in the village this morning as well, I would say around 5cm or so in places. Light snow in the village; heavy snow in the mountains is what Happo guys have been saying.

Nice. But we want more!

Resorts around the village are of course largely on stand-by and you can be sure that as soon as there's enough snow they'll be getting lifts moving. Who will be first?!

With snow on the forecast right through from today until Sunday - and looking like it might be decent snowfall too at times - I think we might be seeing the first action pretty soon.

Things might move fast over the next few days, but I will do my best and keep on top of the situation for you! Gambarimasu.

Just to update you on that bug I mentioned in the report yesterday - it has been fixed and previous reports that showed the incorrect number should now be displaying as they should. Sorry about that again and thanks to people for pointing it out.
