What an interesting day.... Last night the moon came out, and the majority view was, "Oh, the snow is over." Wake up at 6 (automatic snowblower mode engaged), checked the fall, and not much. Back to bed. Seven a.m., the snow is just coming down like mad - several centimeters per hour. Climb to a peak: sunny and windy. Ski back down: deep fog and more snow. Ah, the variety that is life in Myoko.

The wind did cause some slowdowns of lifts, but no stoppages that we heard about.

In the backcountry, we saw a major slab avalanche on the north face of Maeyama (down to the rain crust at about 65cm); today, lots of crown lines in all directions. It's really unclear out there right now, so good knowledge, full gear and some restraint are all required tools for the adventurer.
