Yet another 30cm of snow overnight has fallen and we now have a 420cm base in place with no end in sight. It is still snowing heavily this morning. I believe that gives us one of the biggest bases in Japan at the moment, certainly at a major resort. You can check snow depths from around Japan on the Snow Depth Charts in the Daily Reports section of SnowJapan.

We had a few pauses in the snow last night but they were very short lived. The battle between man and snow continues and unfortunately it is a losing one. Even if we clear the snow there is limited space to put it so most have resorted to putting it in dump trucks and dumping it down in the river.

Yesterday on the mountain there was plenty of snow and also plenty of people. This meant that some areas were getting tracked out and moguls at a fairly quick rate. Still, some amazing powder around and the sides of the runs was the safest place to explore.

Yuta and the team at Compass house are holding a demo day for Armada Skis up the top at Yamabiko today. Perfect timing and can guarantee the Fat Powder skis will be popular. It is free to demo so drop in and have a try.

With all this snow the risk of avalanches is prevalent so please observe the signs and warnings from the ski resort. It is pretty chilly up there too so stay safe and rug up.

Outlook is for light snow over the next two days apparently then a big dump on Tuesday night! I think it has already started...
