New Year's went out with a bang with fireworks and a torch run down the slopes above the Kogen and also with plenty of snow. Temperatures have been mild at the base, hovering around freezing, so the snow is quite heavy down low. The resort is reporting a significant loss in snowdepth since yesterday up high but don't be fooled into thinking that's due to less snow. It's just the extreme winds yesterday that had most of the lifts closed around the mountain and caused disruptions at the airport have scoured much of the new snow off the more exposed areas. The snow though will have collected in protected areas so there should still be some really deep turns to be found up there.
The gates accessing Annupuri bowl are opening today and that's where'd I'd be heading if I wasn't working. The gates in Hirafu will remain closed today.
Mild temps and snow will continue over the next few days. From Sunday though it should start to get a little cooler and the snow a little drier. Snowfalls, heavy at times are expected to continue throughout the outlook period.
