Now this is more like it. Hold on, I'll use capitals. THIS IS MORE LIKE IT!

Can you tell how happy I am to be able to report some very nice heavy snowfall this morning? Yes it was coming down yesterday and by 4pm the resort was reporting 15cm around the mountain, but we woke to lots more snow. Here's what they are reporting on various parts of the mountain since 3pm yesterday:

Yamabiko - 30cm
Uenotaira - 40cm
Hikage - 35cm
Nagasaka - 35cm
Karasawa - 30cm

So that means in places there has been over half a metre of snow. The snow depth numbers have zoomed right up this morning as well as you would expect, with Yamabiko now reporting 260cm and Hikage on 145cm.

It's good and cold as well this morning. It is still snowing and should be (on and off?) for the day and beyond though some local forecasts have the snow easing off somewhat. Whatever, the snow clouds should remain closeby and I'll let you know every morning anyway.

Conditions should be top notch this morning.

Hurray!

Enjoy but remember to take care out there in those deep conditions. Visibility is generally poor, so know where you're going.
