Sorry about the late report but better late than never!
Overnight there was around another 20cm of snow and then first thing this morning it was mostly clear with views right to the summit of Youtei. And although there was a storm warning issued at village level it was relatively calm. Plumes of snow could be seen streaming from the peaks though, an indicator of the approaching storm. Mid morning the storm hit with strong winds and plenty more snow, 15cm+. With all the unconsolidated snow from the last week there has been a lot of drifting.
Up high there will have been rapid cornice development and loading of lee slopes so avalanche danger will be pretty high for the next couple of days.
Snow will continue on and off for the next few days and at this stage Christmas day looks like it will be mostly fine. It will also warm a little towards the end of the week. Another big storm system looks set to move through the region later on Boxing Day.
