The forecast was never for heavy snow yesterday - not sure how that slipped in - but we did get a slow steady flutter throughout the day and the powder this morning is light and fluffy.

Goryu is reporting 10cm of new snow since their last report yesterday morning we can assume thats the total accumulation for the last 24 hours, but it seems like more. There are some great powder stashes and nice groomers out there today again.

The weather has done a great job somehow in that even though we haven't perhaps had a huge amount of snow compared to some years it feels like we've had tons of powder!

No snow overnight, some patches of blue up there if you look hard enough but pretty much overcast with some tiny dust-like snowflakes falling; can't say its snowing here in the village though.

Cold one this morning with Happo reporting -11 degrees early this AM up top and around -4 at the base.

Looks like clear skies tomorrow then its all about Sunday with what could be a large dump coming in Sat day/night and snow continuing through Sun.
