I am the bearer of good news this morning.

New snow. Nice powdery snow. Oh yes.

Yamabiko - 20cm
Uenotaira - 25cm
Hikage - 30cm
Nagasaka - 35cm
Karasawa - 25cm

So today, most snowfall on... Nagasaka?! Interesting. But bottom line is there's a good wad of new light fresh snow over all the mountain as we feel like we are back to winter again. Although it's strangely mild and just about keeping in the negatives for now. We are being told of the chance of the snow being sleet later on down here at base, but I hope we avoid that.

Just a few less exciting things to report. First of all it looks like early on the popular Skyline course is closed, as well as the Kamoshika course. I don't have any details on that or whether they will open later on in the day.

The other is that this weekend again heavy snow is falling in places where it often doesn't - down to the south including the Tokyo area. There seems to be widespread disruption to traffic with roads closed and trains cancelled. This will mean less people getting here, which while sad for those people it means less crowds for those who are here.

Should be a top day today. Enjoy.
