A bit more snow to report this morning, perhaps 5-10cm or so. I'm looking on at a few other places not too far away getting 30cm and 40cm and wondering... where's ours then?! It doesn't look like we should have too much longer though as those clouds heavy with large quantities of fluffy light snow are just around the corner and due to hit around the weekend or just before. Before then it looks like it will be light snow and cloudy conditions all the way really along with continued cold temperatures.

This morning in Maruike it is about -7 degrees and up on the hills it will be considerably colder in places. There's not much of a wind, so get wrapped up and it's comfortable.

In terms of terrain that is open, I would say that Kumanoyu (skiers only) and Yokoteyama (limited snowboarding) probably offer the most - but that's not much use for the snowboarders amongst us.

So we wait for things to really get started properly. Hopefully that will be this weekend.
