Good morning!

The snow depth at the base is currently 85 cm at the base and 210 cm at the peak.

Currently, it's cloudy with occasional snow showers and fairly windy, and there has been 1 cm of new snowfall at the base and 5 cm at the peak in the last 24 hours, with another 7 cm predicted for the next 24 hours. It is calm at the base, with fair visibility.

Nagamine 2's opening will be delayed until at least tomorrow, and the gondola and Asari 2 are both currently on wind hold, with wind predicted to stay steady throughout the day, so the gondola at least will likely be closed for the whole day.

Courses are still somewhat limited, but coverage is improving with the recent snow. The "Powder Zone" course accessible from the Center Express (or the gondola when it's open) definitely had some decent powder and wasn't tracked out when I rode it at noon yesterday.
