"We've been Myoko'd!" a friend said last night, as the snow just continued to pound down last night. He knows something about snow: a pro skier from the US West Coast, he's skied all over the world—but on a visit here last year said that he had never seen so much snow in his life. And it repeated itself last night.

The reports today are rather conservative; Seki actually didn't overstate things, I think, with a 60cm total (Suginohara and Tangram's 10cm is insane). There was also lots of blowing so there are huge drifts in places, too. It's a little hairy in the backcountry right now, with wind-loaded slopes on top of a hard layer. Be a little careful if you do decide to struggle through the pack to get up. A few test cuts yesterday sent off huge sluffs on just little slopes.

The 15th is Kids Ski Day in Myoko, with free passes for primary school and below.
