Dust on crust today. The Niigata prefecture forecast (one of the most accurate in getting snowfall right) predicted 15cm; we got 4. It is snowing, much colder than yesterday, and the rain-soaked snow of yesterday has turned to ice on top, softer underneath. Not great for offpiste skiing (and I am being polite).

The winds are still very strong offshore, as they are all along the Japan Sea coast, and they could get stronger. Lotte Arai Resort did close down early in the day, although the lower lifts were open later. I see that one lift is closed right now - just keep an eye on what happens as gondolas, especially, will stop running as the winds pick up. Just hoping that tonight’s potential heavy snow becomes a reality, and that the rain layer in the snow just slowly disappears (as often happens here) into the snowpack, and things are safe for the backcountry crowd.
