The snow really turned on yesterday afternoon and this morning we are still in the middle of a very decent snow storm. It is coming down in style at the moment. Information from around the resorts this morning is... patchy... but while I can't see any big changes, this snowfall will definitely be a big help moving forward. There are actually seemingly fewer lifts operating this morning, partly due to it being an early season weekday perhaps and also because of the weather conditions, but early on it seems to be like this:

Sun Valley - 1 lift
Mammoth - 1 lifts
Ichinose Family - 1 lifts
Ichinose Diamond - 1 lift
Yakebitaiyama - 1 lifts
Kumanoyu - 1 lifts
Yokoteyama - 4 lifts

Resorts around the area reporting up to 40cm of new snow this morning, and I was seeing at least 30cm on the tops of cars. Visibility is poor this morning and the roads are covered in snow - care required both on the roads and on the slopes!

Yokoteyama:
80cm
Shibutoge:
