SNOW!
10cm of fresh snow at the valley level this morning and 25 cm over 1300m (Tenjin, Houdaigi). The sun has now come out and it looks like it is here to stay for the day, so great on-piste conditions for riding today.

From tomorrow the forecast shows a week of snow on the way, starting from Friday evening. An occluded front is expected to move over Japan on the weekend bringing snow to the mountains (rain to the plains). This is the much awaited snowfall for the resorts of Central Japan, especially lower lying resorts which have been struggling over the past 5 days of warmer weather.

Backcountry
The warmer weather of recently has enabled a settling of the snow pack, especially the new snow from the large storm over the new years period. The new snow is starting to bond with the rain layer of December 29th but there are still some weak layers present in the upper snow pack (20cm, 45cm). Caution should be exercised on steep terrain, especially in the alpine around rocks, convex rolls and cornices.

Hazard:

Above tree line: Considerable

Tree line: Moderate

Below tree line: Moderate
