Today it is a similar story as yesterday. Started off brighter than it is now as we have a more subdued look to things even though the sun is sort of casting some shadows on the lower slopes. Put it this way, it's not a bright blue sky day... more overcast looking.

Not as cold as well as this mild period is sticking around for a few days. It was still around -5 degrees earlier on when I got up though so not what you would call warm! Having said that even up top at Utopia they are recording a temperature of -3 degrees which is very mild for up there.

Just a cm or so of new snow this morning to report from overnight and a slight-moderate wind.

No significant snowfall over the next few days forecast - it should be back with us at the end of the week. Colder temperatures are due to return from tomorrow.

Just a reminder to Juhyo hunters. The night time "Light Up" operations continue every day throughout Febraury until the 29th. The monsters are looking good, it's peak season now so definitely worth a look if you are in Zao.

Official snow depths (14th February 12)
Utopia - 275cm
Chuo - 240cm
Paradise - 260cm
Uwanodai - 185cm
