What a difference a few days makes. We have gone from spring conditions to full on powder today. Snow was falling for most of yesterday and this morning we have I would guess at least 30cm of new snowfall, possibly more. There was a wind yesterday that was blowing everything about so it will be more and less in places.

It was also very cold this morning. Very cold back down to minus double digits. While that made it difficult to get up in that cold, the though of all that new snow to enjoy surely made up for it and I'm sure lots of people made it out for their first tracks this morning.

It's just cloudy here in the Maruike area at the moment and there's even signs of the sun casting shadows on the slopes. I can see some blue skies as well and just before I was over at Ichinose and there was a fair bit of blue sky opening up. So conditions seem to be clearing up. And tomorrow the forecast is for clear and sunny skies. It should stay cold and perhaps a chance of more snow tomorrow night but after that and into the weekend we are going to have a return of warmer conditions once again.

For now though, some very nice conditions out there once again.

Nighta operations this evening planned at the following resort area:
