We have been slammed. Buried. Ensconsed in snow.

It was pretty windy through the night, so there was a lot of drifting. I sat inside while the team gallantly made it out to our study area. The official depth out there, in a non-drifted area, was 92cm (they also poked around our driveway, and found everything from 80 to one meter. So let's go with 92!). It's also really light, so people probably should be more than a little careful going offpiste. Sluffing is definitely a possibility, and those narrow valleys that are everywhere here would be a really bad place to slowly slide into.

Lotte Arai is not running this morning at least; check their website before you go! (actually, they just opened Sanroku No. 1; more opening later?)

Kyukamura Runrun is starting a little late, too. Suginohara might be a bit delayed while they clear snow. But it will be worth it! Good snow for everyone...
