Now this is more like it!

A lovely morning with a sea of clouds in the valley below us, some blue skies above us,....and 20+cm of fresh snow on the ground.

Yes, I'm extremely pleased to be able to report a good new layer of snow this morning. It actually all came during the day yesterday rather than overnight. Lovely. With the early morning weather as well it should be a really great morning. I am going to be out there, that's for sure!

The even better news is that more snow is due later on today and into tomorrow and that snow around Monday as well is still on the cards. If we can just get a fairly decent amount over these next few days, there'll be lots of happy people.

Monday is a national holiday in Japan so it is long 3-day weekend coming up, and traditionally one of the more popular for people heading to the ski resorts. So it should be busy. And I expect there to be lots of people who have been waiting for fresh snow as well.

Hope you can enjoy it.
