Yesterday was a day of deep conditions for most people who ventured out onto the slopes. I heard a few stories of people getting lost and almost buried in snow but happily no situations that have caused too much concern.

There was another 10-15cm or so of fresh snow on the top of the car this morning as the snow continues to fall from the skies. It is lighter snow this morning and visibility around town is better than it has been the last few days but still pretty poor on most of the slopes around town I would imagine. It has even been easing off as well on and off over the last hour, but the just-released local forecast tell us to expect another 5-10cm by this evening.

Stronger winds on the mountains today causing a some lifts to slow down or stop at Naeba and that electric problem at Kagura is limiting the opening of that resort. Please see the Naeba Now report for more on those things.

Check out the snow depth info below. Impressive numbers and interesting to see Centleisure Maiko with the most at 370cm. The snowfall in that Ishiuchi area on the border of Yuzawa and Minamiuonuma certainly has been impressive with some big 'snow walls' piling up on the side of Route 17... in some places they are close to 4m in height!

We're not done yet though as snow is still on the forecast for each day through until the end of the week, and Tuesday and Wednesday are still looking like they are going to bring another decent dump of snow.
