Things have improved this morning.

Colder and some fresh snow.

Now that we have that wet behind us, there's a layer of white on the ground this morning with the resort reporting 10cm across the mountain. Light snow currently falling but nothing major. Limited visibility on the upper slopes early but decent lower down.

Looking ahead towards the next significant snowfall... the snow that is due to start falling on Friday should continue coming down over the weekend and into next week. Juicy numbers may well be on the menu there and I will certainly be looking forward to reporting them. Onegai shimasu.

In the meantime, the sun may make an appearance tomorrow. But it should remain cold.
