Good morning!

The snow depth at the base is currently 100 cm at the base and 250 cm at the peak.

Currently, it's lightly snowing and calm, clearing to fair visibility and there has been 28 cm of new snowfall with wind drifts up to 40 cm at the base and 45 cm at the peak in the last 24 hours, with another 27 cm predicted for the next 24 hours. It was snowing pretty heavily last night when I came in from Otaru, and it’s supposed to continue throughout the day, lighten up a bit tomorrow, then clear by Sunday afternoon.

Nagamine No. 2 is supposed to open today, finally opening up all of the lifts.
