Good news folks.

17cm of fresh snowfall at base. The resort appears to be saying around 40cm on the Daishamen area.

Details-details - whatever, there is a decent layer of fresh covering the mountain this morning and surely breathing new life into proceedings.

We are also expecting light snow during the day today and some heavier snow again possibly tonight.

Nice.
