An early report this morning and we can actually see a bit of the mountains this morning after those few days of cloud, snowfall and poor visibility. No new cm of snow overnight though there was probably another 5cm during the dayime yesterday. Wet snow, and the wind was quite strong.

This morning it is just cloudy as I write this, with cloud and sometimes light snow forecast this morning and just cloudy this afternoon. Having said that, even in the 15 minutes since I started writing this, it feels like it's clearing up a bit. The clouds are nowhere near as thick as the last few days. There's only a light wind as well this morning. The local forecast for tomorow is just cloud but it feels like it might end up being clearer.

Kagura is back open as planned after a few wind affected days and reporting 10cm of fresh snow since yesterday. With some lifts not moving during the snow storm, there should be some fine untouched conditions there this morning.

In other resort news, all of the Okusoeji bowl area of the Maiko Snow Resort is now open.

Looks like there will be more snow before the weekend, and so I would expect (and hope) that for the weekend places will be close to fully open.
