Blizzard out there as I write this. Can't see much of anything at all.

It's snowing quite handily at the moment and it's windy - we can expect some lift disruption this morning.

One of those days when the wind is blowing the snow around but after a look around my usual measuring spot(s), I think 15cm is representative. Kumanoyu are reporting 20cm of new snowfall and Yakebitaiyama are reporting 15cm.

Snowfall should ease off by tomorrow morning, but hopefully we'll get another good fresh layer before then.
