You like fresh snow? We got it!

After a day of snowfall and at times rather blusterly winds - at times the snow coming down at quite the speed - the resort is reporting over 50cm of fresh up at Uenotaira and a good solid 30+cm at base since my report yesterday morning. Interestingly less on the upper Yamabiko area than lower down.

Dare I say it, but there should be some good deep conditions to be enjoyed this morning. Very nice.

Looks like Kamoshika and Tanuki courses are closed this morning, I don't know why but imagine they are checking things over there with all the fresh snow. Nozawa is big scale though so plenty of areas to find that fresh snow.

Looking ahead, after a day of cloud and sometimes light snow, a clear and cold night is forecast for tonight with more snow due later on tomorrow. Beyond that a few days of potentially clearer skies and then back to snow around Thursday into Friday.

Let's not get ahead of ourselves though. Today will be a very good one.
