We have a fair amount of fresh powder on the menu this morning. Strong winds are preventing me giving you a definite number, but I'd say that we have had at least 40cm of new snow since last report - perhaps more.

It sure is a mid-winter morning with very cold temperatures of minus double figures (Maruike this morning reporting -14 degrees) and some blizzard like conditions out there with strong winds and the snow blowing about everywhere. Not everyone's cup of tea thats for sure, but for those brave enough to get out there there will be plenty of deep snow to play in.

Having said that because of the conditions some areas are closed today and expect lifts to be running slowly at others. Terakoya and Mammoth seem to be closed as well as Ichinose Family though they are hoping to be moving a bit later on. It also seems that Yokoteyama is not opening yet today... so it's generally limited operations out there at the moment.

The snow will likely continue into tomorrow though perhaps calmer conditions...

Nighta this evening planned at the following resort areas (may be affected by conditions):

- Sun Valley
- Ichinose Family
- Ichinose Diamond
- Kumanoyu
