As so often happens, a clear and sunny day is followed by winter-like conditions with snow falling and strong winds. And that is what is going on today as winds blow around the snow that we have had overnight. It's coming down really nicely at the moment here in Maruike - nice big flakes.... it feels like mid-season again! Good thing is that temperatures are down as well and it feels really cold. With the wind it's difficult to say how much but definitely over 10cm and more in places. The way it is falling now as well we can expect that to increase quite quickly. This snowfall should continue into tomorrow and so we might see some really healthy numbers to report tomorrow morning.

I guess a fair few people might be giving today a miss to take an onsen or see the monkeys at Jigokudani, but if you brave the elements you should get some nice turns in fresh snow and have the place almost to yourself at the same time.

Nighta operations this evening planned at the following resort area:

- Ichinose Family
