Snow. Snow. Snow. The little notice window on the home screen of my iPad was saying "Heavy snowfall warning" yesterday, but at 10pm or so the stars were out. Another day of heavy snow on the coast, less so up here, I thought.

But early morning revealed round mounds of cars and 50cm of snow — beautiful, sparlkly, amazing snow. Powder snow.

It's actually a bit much for those thinking about going offpiste today, in fact, with the risk of loose snow avalanches much higher than yesterday. Think of getting caught in slide of light loose snow that then carries you into a narrow valley... yes, wait for it to settle a bit!

Hard to tell about conditions at some places, especially Lotte Arai, where they don't post the lifts that will be open during the day, but the current conditions, so only Arai Gondola and Zendana Lift now shown as operating.
