It's one of those days where it looks like something is about to happen, but it's not doing anything just yet.

We had some pretty good snow falling last night; wet, but some pretty good snowfall. By morning, though, it only was about 15cm in total (and still pretty heavy). Right now it's dark over Mt. Myoko and Mt. Kurohime just to the south; it seems like a lot of weather sort of sneaks in through the gap between the two mountains. The marker flags outside are also hanging absolutely limp - not a hint of wind.

Snow is also on the forecast, but it's not here yet, either. The good news is that we didn't have any rain in the end yesterday, as gloomy as it seemed early in the day. RIght now, we're just waiting for whatever happens next—hopefully a good snowfall and a reset on the hill.

Offpiste there was still some good snow remaining on north faces, but that will need some help soon, too (and the temperatures are not as low as the resorts are reporting; it was 0° at the base of Akakan at 7:30 this morning—Ikenotaira and Myoko Snow Park win the honest reporting award for the day).
