Yesterday was one of those full-on winter days with lots of snow and wind blowing it around. We got more snow since my last report, I would guess around 20cm or so, but this morning it's all change again. There are some fast moving white clouds around, but lots of blue sky. The sun is shining down on Maruike right now and I am itching to get out there. I won't rush the report though, don't worry!

It's one of those 'I really just want to get out there' mornings, it's all looking very enticing and with uncrowded slopes there is a lot to choose from. Lots of pockets of untouched everywhere. Okushiga and Yakebitaiyama are both now reporting 150cm of snow and that is a fair jump from just a few days ago while some others have not changed. Go figure, another of those oddities in the snow depth numbers. But like I said it doesn't matter, there's new snow out there and that is what matters.

According to the forecast we might actually see some snow later on today. Doesn't look like it right now, but those clouds sure can roll in fast, so you never know. We are still due for clear and sunny conditions over the weekend though along with very cold temperatures.

Should be a good weekend to be in the area.

Nighta operations this evening planned at the following resort areas:
