Some great big whopping ridiculously large numbers to report this morning.

The resort yesterday was noting 10cm of snowfall during the day on the upper slopes when I checked last night. Hmmm, ok, but where's the heavy snow we wanted.

Well, this morning, it's here!

For the period 3pm yesterday until 8am this morning, this is how much fresh snow they are reporting:

Yamabiko - 95cm (!)
Uenotaira - 90cm
Nagasaka - 80cm

That's new snowfall, not the snow depth.

That new snow has all of a sudden brough up the snow depth on the top Yamabiko runs up to 165cm. In previous reports I have mentioned how quickly things can change and today is a great example. All of a sudden, 1m of fresh snow.

Lifts and courses that are open seem to be the same as yesterday and while it's a decent area, it will be great to see the whole resort be able to open and I'm sure that will be fairly soon with all this snow.

Forecast: snow through today and getting weaker by tomorrow morning. Then more heavy snow late Tuesday and Wednesday.

We might get some sun on Friday. Lots more snow to get before then though.

It's all great to get very excited about the deep powder snow conditions, but care is most definitely needed.
