Here comes the sun...

It has been a while but yesterday afternoon the sun burst on to the stage to create a magical day on the slopes and in the village.

With a 410cm base, a good overnight dump and very few crowds the stage was set for perfection. Snow conditions were excellent under foot on the groomers and up on the slopes of Yamabiko there was even a good coverage of powder that remained untouched for most of the morning.

We had some snow last night but the sun was out again this morning though things have started to cloud over once again around lunchtime.

The clearing of snow continues in the Village, the roofs are lined with people doing their best to take some of the weight off. Trucks and shovels are going hard below to take it away. A big ‘otsukaresama’ and well done to everyone in town for their efforts in the extreme conditions we have experienced.

The outlook is for more snowy days ahead. Not as heavy as was previously expected perhaps but still consistent good moderate falls for a while to come, will keep you posted.
