Cold, frosty and clear in Myoko today.

The snow is covered in a thick layer of great big feathery snow facets - beautiful sparkling snow that could be dangerous in a lot of places (it could form a layer of weak snow within a snowpack in many places, but most likely the big flakes will melt away in this nice sun).

Some great snow out there in the backcountry, too, yesterday, and likely today as well, while the ski areas are really nice and very open (I saw more members of the Japan Self-Defence forces out practicing at both Ikenotaira and Akakan than recreational skiers yesterday).

You can see for miles/kilometers; probably good views of Mt. Fuji for anyone up high on Suginohara or Ikenotaira. Yes, it is a long way off....
