This is more like it!

We got lots of snow since my last report.

A lot!

Let's see what the ski area is reporting. Yesterday the top areas were reporting 10-13cm of fresh during the day. This morning there's an extra 68cm being reported from Yamabiko and 55cm on Uenotaira. Lower areas are reporting 40-50cm too. Woo-hoo! That's one impressive refresh.

The problem this morning is wind. Nagasaka Gondola, Yamabiko quads, Skyline and Uenotaira are all going to be closed for the entire day. There may be other lifts affected (I'm looking at you Hikage Gondola and Paradise quad). Thats unfortunate, but it means that after we get more snow today, once things calm down the conditions out there should be superb.

Tomorrow perhaps?

Naski sitting the morning out. Probably in an onsen.
