Great news this morning. We have had a delivery of fresh powder overnight with 10cm at Yamabiko, 13cm at Uenotaira as of 10am. Reports from the mountain suggest more than a few deeper light dry windblown stashes and some even 'knee deep', especially in the higher elevation gullies. Nice.

Just a few cm or so down at village level.

Light snowfalls are continued for most of the morning though easing off now. Not many people out there will ensure fresh tracks should be easily found all day long. The gondola line was maybe 15 people waiting at opening.

Yesterday the snow remained slushy but did not get too slow. Best areas were the top half of the mountain as well as the challenge area. We had cloud last most of the day however thankfully forecast rainfalls did not happen.

Looking ahead, cold conditions should last the rest of today with occasional snow showers passing through. Actually as this is being written the sun is peeking through the clouds, though it may well be temporary.

Tomorrow should be warmer than today and we expect the sun to make an appearance. Light snow showers are a possibility tomorrow night so we may have some more fresh snow to play in come Saturday morning. We are set for another cold spell Monday Tuesday next week with some snowfall expected.
