Mid-winter conditions continue this morning with the snow still falling and temperatures down there in minus double figures again. I was out on the snow yesterday and blizzard like weather aside, the snow was incredible. Some people may have be put off by the weather, but once this storm clears up it is going to be perfect conditions here.

There has been at least another 20-30cm of snow. Actually, today the winds aren't as strong and the snow is falling slower, so it is a good day to be out there enjoying all this new powder.

So when is it going to clear up? Well we have more snow forecast for the rest of today and tomorrow as well. It's looking like Monday may offer us some clearer weather but generally for the next week or so the cold and wintery like conditions should continue, though not as extreme as it has been the last few days. Monday will also see the resorts start returning to 'normal mode' as many people will have returned after their New Year trip.

Nighta this evening at the following resort areas:

Sun Valley
Ichinose Family
Ichinise Diamond
Yakebitaiyama
Kumanoyu
