Sometimes life just isn't fair and having to work on a bluebird morning after 36 hours of continuous snowfalls is certainly one of those times!
Heavy snow and strong winds continued throughout yesterday and the top half of the mountain remained closed. The snowfalls eased overnight and this morning it's clear and sunny with untracked slopes all around the resort.
The strong winds have caused massive drifting into lee slopes with accumulations of up to 2m on top of the Jan 7 layer. Obviously this has pushed avalanche danger right up and it is unlikely the peaks gates or gate 3 will open today. Gate 4 into Fujiwara is expected to open after 10:30 but it is advisable not to traverse right out under the cornice below Higahsi One ridge.
Another weak low is expected to cross the region later today and a little snow will develop this afternoon so make sure you get out there this morning and enjoy turns in the sun whilst you can.
