The snow clouds are still with us this morning. Yesterday it was snowy conditions for most of the time and we should be on for more of the same today. I would say we haver had about 15cm of so since yesterdays report.

There's a light wind this morning and a temperature of around -6 in the village and it does feel colder than yesterday. Up at the top of the mountain it is around -11 degrees. There are fast moving clouds covering the mountain but at times clearing up for short periods giving us a bit of a view - though it looks like it will be a few more days before we can enjoy some clear weather as more snowy conditions are forecast for the next few days.

Official snow depths on the resort:

Chuo area:
160cm

Paradise area:
165cm

Utopia area:
155cm
