Snow coverage has really improved on the ski area in the last couple of days. The official base depth is now 115cm and the slopes are in prime condition for this time of the season. The only thing missing is that we need to see more of the courses open up. This morning there has been a further 9cm of snow in the Kitanomine village. It is still snowing lightly and heavier falls are on the forecast for the afternoon. Not quite as cold as yesterday, it is -8c now and will only get slightly warmer (-6c) during the day.
