MERRY CHRISTMAS!
What better present than a 2 day snow storm!

The snow started on Christmas evening around 18:00 and is forecast to continue through to the early hours of Sunday morning. There is currently 40 cm of fresh snow at the valley level and up to 55 cm of fresh in the upper mountains. By Sunday morning the storm should have accumulated more than 70cm of new snow at the valley level and around 100cm in the upper mountains.

This is the first real storm of the season. This well timed storm will mean that all ski areas in Minakami should be open by tomorrow.

Sunday looks like a relatively sunny day, as a high pressure system moves over most of Japan. But the precipitation should return from Monday evening with more snow expected from Tuesday through to Wednesday (31st).

As far as backcountry and off piste riding goes, there is not really enough base as yet to venture to far out of bounds. There are still many small trees and bushes poking through as well as many exposed streams in the valleys. This storm will put a nice cover over things but only enough to hide the dangers from view. Best to wait until after the new year so this snow can settle.
