There has been nother 5-10cm or so of fresh snow in the village and base areas this morning. More higher up - Happo-one telling us there was 15cm of fresh up on the Usagidaira area of the resort.

It was snowing good last night though it must have eased off overnight. Still, daily top-ups at are certainly a good thing.

It doesn't look like there's much change on the open lift/courses front this morning with operations pretty much as they were yesterday.

The forecast tells us that it might actually clear up a bit today and for the next significant snow to be arriving at the end of the coming week. Before then we might get a mix of sometime snow showers, sun and rain.
