Good morning.

The resort is reporting 20cm of fresh snow across the mountain - with up to 50cm up top on Yamabiko. I concur with that 20cm number, actually my number is 22cm. A nice new layer of snow and apparently lots of it the higher up you go.

Visibility is poor this morning as snow continue to fall and it feels pretty cold to me. So you need to get wrapped up but should be rewarded with some fine conditions if you brave the elements.

Schneider, Challenge and Isemiya courses are now open and we can now ride back to base via Rinkan (Forest), Ushikubi or Kurokura courses.

Skyline yet to make the debut for the season, but there's still lots to choose from with most of the mountain now available.

Hope you have a good Sunday.
