The snow really picked up overnight with minimal wind involved and there was a meter at the base this morning and an additional 30cm has fallen since.

The forecast is for a clear day tomorrow with the intensity gradually decreasing till then. Tenjin is completely closed and if history is a guide the ropeway will crank into action again tomorrow around noon with the Tajirisawa course opening Tuesday around noon. Backcountry powderhounds will want to buy their katamichi-kens (1 way up tickets) to get at this snow while its good.

I've been using the ropeway reported snowfalls which are always grossly understated but in this case I will take the base figure since my last report and use it for the top as well. In all likelihood far more will have fallen. Very large amounts of snow.
