Sorry for the lack of a report yesterday. But today I bring good news.

Snow! Lots of snow! It's very 'Myoko' out there this morning, with heavy snowfall, delayed trains and people heading out early to try and get back to the big cities. Meaning a great day for the powderhounds.

We probably had 30-50 cm at base level - a little hard to tell with a lot of blowing - and it's even coming down harder now. After leaving for about an hour to take a friend down to the station (train delayed about 20 minutes), returned to find the driveway pretty well filled in again.

The wind is gusting at times, which could result in some lift closures (particularly Suginohara's No. 3 - check ahead - and the gondolas at Akakan and Suginohara). It's also bringing visibility way down. Worse for driving than for skiing....

Off the piste, there is a hard rain crust that has produced some isolated slides. Keep an eye on steep slopes, bring all your gear (even if you're just going off the lifts). Better, choose a safe slope and enjoy all that powder.
