Snowfalls continued through yesterday and well into the night. In the early hours the snow eased and this morning is only partly cloudy with a few snow showers moving through. Conditions up on the mountain should be very good and with little wind around drifting has been minimal and avalanche danger remains relatively low allowing all gates to open so you can get out there and enjoy the powder.
It's still expected to become milder over the next couple of days with some wet snow coming in later tomorrow into Friday. The system on the weekend looks like it will move a little to the east of us so the massive dump predicted on snow-forecast has been downgraded somewhat but we'll still have strong northwesterly winds as it passes and plenty of snow should fall. Depending on how much we get over the next few days total snowfall this month should well exceed 3m in Kutchan (much more up on the hill). This will be a little below average but still more than most Aussie resorts receive in a whole season.
The low pressure system should remain to the northeast of Hokkaido for much of the coming week directed reasonably cool air and snow over us so the start of Feb is looking good.
Anyway with milder air moving in tomorrow make sure you get out there today and enjoy the light, fluffy stuff!
