I have good news this morning.

After a beautiful morning with clear blue skies, clouds gradually moved in later on in the day and it was snowing by evening.

And this morning I have 23cm of fresh snow on the ground to report. A very welcome refresh.

Here is the what ski reports themselves are reporting this morning:

Kagura (main): 40cm
Kagura (Mitsumata): 30cm
Kagura (Tashiro): 20cm
Maiko Snow Resort: 30cm
Muikamachi Hakkaisan: 30-40cm

So there's some decent numbers there and it should go a good way to covering up tracks - though more is of course always welcome.

It is snowing lightly at the moment, but it isn't expected to last today with sun on the forecast for later on.

Sun is forecast for tomorrow too with the next snow due around Wednesday but there's a chance of it being rain with milder conditions. Let's deal with that when we get there!

For today, things should be good.

Maiko Snow Resort was having issues with their Gondola yesterday, but it seems to be opening as planned this morning.
