We did get some rain down at Village level last night, but the good news is that it looks like it was snow up high with 10cm of fresh being reported this morning at Yamabiko.

It has started to snow outside in the village this morning too from about 7am and is getting a bit heavier as I type.
Temps are just above 0 degrees so hoping it will stay cold enough for the snow to continue, though it is rather wet snow right now.

Yesterday was almost like spring conditions, especially down the bottom with some sticky snow. Up high was still decent though. But it was a warm day with the South winds coming up bringing that Okinawa warm current.

Outlook is for lots of sunshine on the menu but temps and the freezing level remain quite low at least in the short term so should be some nice days for the weekend.

For anyone in town tonight the Shinden area community are hosting an Igloo Festival at the Hanzan Bunko Museum which is the green church type looking building in the middle of the Village just up from Juodo Onsen. Starts at 7pm and will be free sake and nabe. Sure to be a great vibe so come on down.

Uenotaira Half Pipe
Karasawa Wave Park
