Yesterday remained fairly mild with occasional wet snow falling at village level. Overnight the snow got heavier but temperatures didn't drop below freezing until earlier this morning. Currently it's around -3 and snowing heavily. Winds are pretty strong but all lifts except the summit lifts have been able to open. Plenty more snow expected throughout today and into Christmas Day. Some deep powder turns is about the best Christmas present any of us could hope for!
Lots and lots more snow expected throughout the next week so conditions will continue to get better and better with each coming day.

Avalanche Information:

Moiwa base 6am: 0℃, moderate wind with 15cm of wet overnight snowfall. Coastal data:WNW19m/s at Benkei cape, W12m/s with 2.7m waves at Kamui cape. Predicted wind at 1300m at noon: WSW20m/s.
New developments of cornices and snowdrifts are overlaying last night’s wet snow and 12/22 layer. The avalanche risk is drastically rising in areas above 800m. As well as risk of a 30cm thick surface slab avalanche risk is to be concerned in steep/cliff slopes below 700m. Do not seek fresh line in strictly off limits areas. One line left under the rope leads many others to follow it and may result in a serious accident. The snow will turn better with the current storm, just need to be a little more patient. 80% of avalanche related accidents happen during or just after storms. Better be cautious today.
