Wow. I have got to admit I wasn't expecting this. Snow on and off yesterday but this morning we have woken up to about what must be 40cm or so of fresh snow on the ground in places. I had to clear around 30cm or so from the top of my car this morning. It's like peak January again almost.

The clouds have been moving on and right now the sun is out and the skies clearing up and more and more blue skies.

All I can say is that conditions out there today will be fantastic. There slopes aren't crowded but the people venturing out will have no complaints!

Nighta tonight is planned at the following resorts:
- Ichinose Family

Yokoteyama:
170cm
Shibutoge:
