I was talking about the forecast of 30cm-60cm yesterday, so how did it turn out?

Well, here in Naeba village there is perhaps around 15cm of snow on the ground. The wind is blowing things around and so difficult to put a number on it. But Kagura resort are putting a number on their new fresh snowfall, and the number is.... 50cm! Yes, 50cm of lovely snow has fallen since yesterday up there which should make conditions pretty sweet. The strong wind is conspiring against us though and because of it Kagura isn't fully open (Mitsumata to the Kagura pair and Tashiro to the Tashiro No 1 quad).

Right now the snow is coming down well and we're really into blizzard-like conditions out there.... heavy snow, strong winds and poor visibility. It's also cold and -6 degrees down on the ground with a temperature of -12 reported from the upper slopes of Naeba. Brrrr, feels like winter again.

The snow should continue today with the local Niigata forecast calling for another 30-70cm into tomorrow. That would be fantastic and really bring conditions back up to top level. More snow forecast tomorrow before things clearing up for the weekend.

Great stuff. The coming weekend should be excellent.

Official Snow Depths:

Naeba:
270cm

Kagura:
380cm

The above numbers aren't reflecting that new snowfall!
