We have a partly cloudy bluebird morning with a fresh top up of powder - 15cm of snow across the mountain. It looks like it will be another perfect day to get up the hill for a ride. The trees and ungroomed runs will have been best early. Once these have become tracked out head for the groomers or your favorite secret tree run to score yet more fresh pow.

We should expect snow showers to move across the region once more this afternoon. Tonight we expect a substantial dump to occur. Woohoo!

Yesterday was one of the days of the season in Nozawa. Super dry deep powder was on offer through the morning; most places were at least waist deep. Light winds and good visibility made riding extremely enjoyable. To top it all off crowds were not an issue whatsoever. Almost with there were more people about.

In the afternoon the sun made an appearance and the powder began to settle improving accessibility for some areas. South facing slopes exposed to the afternoon sun became heavy but shaded gullies remained epic.

We are about halfway through this extended snowfall period. As alluded to earlier we expect a very solid dump to occur tonight. Based on current weather model predictions we could see at least 30cm fall off a moist NW airstream, probably more. Light snow will continue on Saturday before another period of moderate to heavy snowfalls on Sunday. We also should see some stronger winds during this time. Clear weather should return by Tuesday.
