Good morning from Madarao.

Cool looking photo today (below) with a curious mix of cloud, sun, blue sky early morning.

No fresh snow to report and nothing else falling from the skies.

I'll tell you what the resort itself is saying this morning:

昨晩は霧雨で、積雪がみるみる沈んでいきました。気温も高いので、雪面は柔らかいです。

That basically translates as: drizzly rain last night and so the snow depth has been going down. As the temperature is (relatively) high, the snow surface is soft.

They're recommending the groomers which are looking lovely and inviting, I might add.

Looks like the Rabbit tree run course is scheduled to be open at Madarao - that will join the SAWA II and Bear courses. Yey!

Hopefully some fresh snow falling tonight for me to report to you tomorrow. See you then.
