Morning from a snowy Madarao. As it should be. A big contrast to how yesterday started.

Curious one this morning with the reports of fresh snow from the resort itself. They are reporting 20cm of fresh snow since yesterday on their daily Japanese report; their Facebook page however is saying 40cm since last night. Perhaps being measured in different places; and the blowing winds factoring into that? I myself am measuring 28cm so I think we can safely say that there is at least 20+cm of fresh snow out there and considerably more in places.

Nice.

What's definite is that it is a very cold morning (wind-chill, it's seems pretty windy out there) and the snow looks great quality, and if you don't mind braving the conditions it should be an excellent morning to be floating on the powder.

Things are forecast to ease up by tomorrow and then sun is due around Saturday so it should be a great weekend to be here.

And guess what --- more snow due by the end of the weekend.

Oh yes!
