Tuesday evening's snowfalls left a nice cover across the three resorts yesterday morning, although the sun facing slopes still had a hard crust under the fresh powder. On the bright side, it was some of the lightest powder we have seen this season. Just have a look at the photos uploaded yesterday which show how easy it was to kick up a wall of snow and also how long it hung in the air.

By mid afternoon the weather had begun to turn but it didn't bring any measurable snowfalls.

It looks like later today we will get some more snow, just how much is not so clear. The sea level charts suggest a perfect setup of lows to our east grinding against a continental high to our west, with the boundary right over us and the Sea of Japan.

However the precipitation charts do not show anything meaningful coming in in the next 24 to 48 hours, which is worrying. Nonetheless, it is possible that the Sea of Japan will feede some localised moisture into the mix.
