The weekend provided some great skiing on the snow that was delivered by the storm last week. Notably the temperatures were very cold on both Saturday and Sunday morning, and some kind of face mask was required to ward off the stinging cold. Apart from that small inconvenience those who made it out on Saturday were rewarded with some fantastic December powder skiing and there were plenty of opportunities for fresh tracks. On Sunday, Kitanomine Gondola started operation giving access to the upper half the Kitanomine slopes for the first time.

Today there is high cloud sitting above the resort and it doesnt look like we will see any sun during the day. Light snow is coming down, but it is very fine and wont accumulate to much. There may be some moderate snow overnight and then from Thursday continuos snow is on the forecast for at least three days. There was 2cm of snow yesterday so there wont be any untracked snow to ski today but the groomed slopes are in beautiful condition for carving.

The 2cm of new snow in today's report fell mid morning yesterday and was not reported yesterday.
