Snow yesterday and I'd say 15cm or so at village level by the evening time. Not the lightest powdery kind of snow, somewhat heavy. Resorts around the village will have got that and a bit more and I hear reports of up to 30cm in the resorts of Otari, perhaps slight less in Hakuba. Curiously the resorts seem to be almost coy about this new snow on their official reports this morning in a classic case of under-reporting.

Anyway as for today, overnight snow showers continued and at the moment again somewhat wet snow falling in village - hopefully lighter consistency snow on the mountain. Add a few more cm to the tally this morning so far.

As of 9:40am it is -1C at village level and around -4C up at 1400m on Usagidaira over in Happo, and a slight southerly wind. Generally poor visibility out on the slopes this morning with cloud cover and the snow.

This new 30cm or so is of course on top of the rain affected slopes that we had in the days previous, creating increased surface instability. It is recommended to stay inbounds at the moment and enjoy the conditions on the resort runs with the increased risks.

Snow forecast to continue on and off through tomorrow and according to some of the local forecasts we might have a clear and calm Saturday. Then back to snow for Sunday.
