All that thunder and lightning and wind paid off, as we got a pretty good snowfall overnight. No where near the 80cm the news channels were saying was likely, but at least we're seeing ski areas finally (apart from always-increasing Seki) raising there snowfall totals. That's especially good news for the resorts on the south side, which had much lower levels than the Akakuras and Seki.

Light snow continues to fall, although it's not adding that much to the 30cm or so we had here at the base level. Looking very positive for Saturday and Sunday, though.

A lot of graupel (soft hail) fell, especially high up, and the grains were pretty big. If we do get more heavy snow on top of that level, be careful until it's clear that the round stuff has bonded well with the rest of the snowpack. It's the first time this season I get to say be careful about potential avalanche danger! But, with those high winds, too, it's a good time to be a little cautious on lee slopes and most steep slopes if more snow does fall.

And at Akakura Kanko, the snow meant that the town-run Yuki Saka Ba, an igloo bar featuring Myoko's three saké brands, finally opens tomorrow night after being postponed since the beginning of the month.
