Yesterday conditions did change after my report and it ended up being a bit of a wild day with wind and poor visibility. Not a huge amount of new snow to report, though it was probably just all blown about by the winds.

This morning things have calmed down and it is right now cloudy with a bit of light snow falling and a temperature of -7 degrees in the village area. Snow is forecast for the day but visibility is much better today. It's very quiet out there with continued excellent snow conditions for those lucky enough to be able to enjoy it.

Light snow and cloud is forecast for the weekend.

Official snow depths on the resort:

Chuo area:
200cm

Paradise area:
185cm

Utopia area:
175cm
