9am update:

The strong wind (18-20 M/s) has arrived sooner than expected and the Kiroro Gondola and Asari 2 are now not operating (and probably will not today as wind is not expected to calm).

-----

Original report:

With 5 additional centimeters (mostly coming in yesterday afternoon), relatively mild temperature (-6) and a calm wind, this morning should be very nice. Less busy too after the long holiday.

The wind is expected to get much stronger from the afternoon, so this morning is definitely the best part of today.

And then we have heavy snow and strong winds forecast over the next 3 coming days... hopefully the wind doesn't get too much...

Official data (as reported by the ski area):

Peak: 310cm snow depth
Base: 200cm snow depth
