Yesterday I said it might calm down a bit for today. Well, it's not as windy but it is still snowing. It just keeps on coming at the moment. Perhaps around 40cm or so since yesterday morning.

Early on this morning a few resorts are only part open or closed again as they cope with the new snowfall again.... as I write this Shibutoge is waiting for conditions to improve and there's limited operations at some of the major areas including Yokoteyama and Kumanoyu. Resorts are asking people to not go out of bounds especially now as there is a good chance of avalanche and it's pretty dangerous. With all of the fluffy powder on resort slopes and everywhere you look though, there really isn't a need to be overly adventurous at the moment.

Weather conditions should slowly start clearing up later on today and into tomorrow though snow clouds may hang around until around Wednesday. As the forecast stands at the moment we can perhaps expect some clearer conditions with the sun around Friday.

Nighta operations this evening planned at the following resort area:

- Ichinose Family
