The rain has indeed turned to snow--about 10cm by the backyard ruler. A big change in temperature over one day, too; yesterday's high was nearly 8C, where it's now around -2C. No big worries for skiing on the groomed, but backcountry travelers should keep an eye on the layer of rain, especially if we get a big snow. Most likely the layer will simply disappear (thank you maritime weather and snow patterns, and Myoko's mild climate), but it could form a hard layer that the new slides off. Apparently they're seeing some of this in Hakuba--but things are a bit more Alpine there.

It always feels funny to give a New Year greeting, because we've just started the new season, and that's more the beginning point of the best part of 365 days. But all the best in the coming year! And especially plenty of snow, of course...
