A bit snowy all day yesterday with visibility pushing bearable. Though there was definitely some powder around, as long as you had 20/20 vision to see exactly where you were going...

It snowed into this morning with some pretty hefty winds (about 80+km/h), but we’ve seen 20cm overnight. Today, tops of -10C (brrrr), with some light snow here and there and some strong winds to match — bringing that wind chill down to -23C. It’s going to be a pretty cold one out there today, and as for the visibility, pack the low light lens and do your best.

As I said yesterday, we’re going to have to wait for another proper Japan-like dump, maybe at the end of this coming week. Tuesday night and Thursday night are looking okay, but amateur stuff really — only about 10cm max snowfall each night! Though we may get lucky. Here’s what the start of your week is looking like at Geto Kogen...

Monday: snow showers, moderate winds, tops of -5C
Tuesday: clear and sunny with moderate snow in the evening, light/moderate winds, tops of -7C
Wednesday: partly cloudy with snow showers, strong winds, easing in the evening and tops of -9C
