Wind and pretty heavy snow, after a day of heavy rains yesterday (the hut roof was a'ringin with the sound of raindrops through the day).

Lots of snow out there; just heard from a local guide who reported waist-deep high on Akakan. Apparently yesterday's rain was snow up high. The official Niigata prediction of 35cm was almost right on the mark; I'm estimating 33cm, considering the blowing and drifting and low spots.

Still some pretty strong winds out there; it's tapered off a bit, after near whiteout conditions around the Akakan base until 9 or so. In fact everything has quieted down at the moment, as we've moved to light snow, calmer conditions and even a hint of the sun trying to come through (although experiences says this could just be a momentary break in the storm).

The gondolas are running; No. 3 at Suginohara, which is quite allergic to wind, started the day closed.
