Very similar day as yesterday.

There's another 40+cm of snow: more powdery than yesterday in base areas - I guess it is even more powdery at the top!

Unfortunately the wind created big snowdrifts that are hamper the opening up this morning so looks like there's going to be a limited number of lift and courses available.

Right now, the operation of Kiroro Gondola and Asari 2 are delayed - they might open if possible.

Nagamine 2 will not open due to strong winds and snowdrift.

The risk of avalanche is definitively high today. Stay on the runs and enjoy it.

Official data (as reported by the ski area):

Peak: 410cm snow depth
Base: 300cm snow depth
