Light snow fell through much of yesterday and then cleared later in the evening. Overnight there was just a dusting of snow but currently it has started snowing reasonably heavily again. There was not enough snow to fill in yesterdays tracks so fresh lines will be a little harder to find today. The resort is opening gate 4 today allowing access into the slopes below Higashi One ridge. Avalanche danger has decreased considerably but it's probably best not to ride right under the cornice off the ridge. Remember if you go through the gates you are leaving the resort boundary and will be up for a huge wad of cash if you need to be rescued. So only enter these areas if you're an advanced skier/boarder and have avalanche knowledge and equipment.

Good falls of snow will continue today and intensify again tomorrow with some stronger winds returning. So we should see in the new year with plenty more fresh powder.
Snow is forecast to continue throughout the outlook period.
