People sitting at their desks in Tokyo, Sydney, London or Katmandu must sometimes think I make this stuff up - we have had another 40cm of fresh snow overnight!

The base is now at a very respectable 300cm and building.

Once again this dump was not forecast - the powers to be were saying light snow... there was a little more than that! It was dumping last night and people were getting quickly covered in snow when they went for a short walk outside.

So it will be truly bottomless powder for the willing this morning and the keen ones were scrambling to get up the hill for first tracks.

Not that it mattered yesterday as you could ski the same course over and over and the tracks were getting filled.

The almost scary thing is they are actually predicting heavy snow for tomorrow (Saturday) night so who knows what that will bring!

We may see a little sun in the morning tomorrow before the dump, then more next week though there are signs that it might get milder next week.

Anyone here or heading up for the weekend should reap some fine rewards.

Cold temps up top today so rug up and if driving to Nozawa be careful on the roads.
