The snow keeps coming down, even if we haven't seen the big increases that we keep getting promised.

Yesterday was a morning of good snowfall, the real Myoko kind (and it was a little colder than I had reported, actually, around -6° even at 10 am). But it didn't want to keep going, and we saw some sun before the snow came back in the afternoon as well. That, too, looked pretty promising, but by the later afternoon the snow had changed to partly sunny skies and some very cold strong winds (made for some especially unpleasant snowthrowing, with cold wind on the nose enhanced with snow flying everywhere).

Light snow continues to fall this morning, though, which is always welcome, even if it probably won't build up to the potential 40cm the weather reports were talking about this morning. We're still doing OK compared to a lot of places, but the snow just doesn't want to keep on falling for extended periods of time as it normally would. It's cold, too, with the car thermometer reading -9° at around 8 this morning.

The backcountry remains very bushy; we could still use a couple of meters of good heavy snow to finally push all that stuff down and get it under the surface. A sort of test team is out there right now, so I can give some more on-the-scene reporting tomorrow. It is getting better, but nobody's going to be doing massive powder turns for a while, unless this light snow decides to keep falling for many days, which looks unlikely. The freezing line will be heading up the mountain again toward the end of the week, with heavy rain even a possibility on Saturday. If that would just change to a heavy fall of physically heavy snow, maybe we could get rid of that bush and tree problem even faster!
