Yesterday the snow bucketed down in the morning dropping around a foot of fresh in just a few hours. As the day progressed the snow turned to sago snow (frozen rain) which was a little heavier. Last night the wind picked up and blowing snow made walking around the village a little uncomfortable. Today we have heavy snow showers with breaks of sunshine and the snow is back to being nice dry Hokkaido powder.

Even with all the new snow the wind and warmer temps of the last couple of days have caused considerable consolidation of the snowpack. Still there should be some good powder to be found in more protected areas. The slopes have been fairly busy over the last week as many Japanese have holdiays around the new year. Still lift queues have been few.
