Hard to believe but still snowing in Nozawa and has not stopped. This is one of the most consistent runs of heavy snowfall I can remember. Who knows if it keeps up we may challenge the huge record of 530cm base set on February 5th 2006. The forecast is showing more moderate to heavy falls on the way so it may be a reality.

They have already started to dig out some of the snow below the lifts as they are becoming dangerously close to the runs below in places.

Yesterday on the mountain was another ridiculous day with more powder than a Johnson and Johnson factory! The sides of Skyline were like a natural half pipe with snow from the middle being pushed high up on the sides.

Today is even better with a lot less people to compete with for fresh tracks now that the weekend crowd has gone. The official reports are showing a massive 45cm up top but less down low may have had something to do with the gusty Antarctic type conditions last night.

There are fresh lines on offer everywhere, it is deep and mind blowing powder.

In the village now we are really praying for a break in the downpour so we can clear some of the snow before it gets dangerous. At this stage no sun on the horizon, just more snow, so for the lucky ones on the mountain strap on the powder boards and enjoy. Be careful out there.
