It was snowing most of the day yesterday - a few periods when it looked like it might actually clear up - but curiously we didn't get that much in terms of new cm.

My still-unmoved car has 14cm of snow on top this morning, that's since yesterday morning, and I can see that Kagura report 5cm and Maiko also report 5cm since last night.

Interestingly, my friend who works over in the next valley to us in Tokamachi says that it was really coming down over there during the day and there was 30cm to clear off their car by the end of the day.

Anyway. It's still snowing now and should be for the day so we should be on for some more. Actually in the last few minutes it has really started coming down hard which is good to see.

Snow clouds should be over the region giving us more or less into early Saturday with clearer skies forecast from Sunday and early in the week next week we can expect warmer conditions too - perhaps a return to spring.

I didn't make it out onto the slopes yesterday but with some more overnight conditions should be pretty good out there.
