And fresh snow we have! Yesterday the snow was coming down nicely from the afternoon and overnight in particular we had some very strong winds blowing around. It makes it diffuclt to say how much snow we got really - in places up to 40-50cm but that is likely due to the wind... I would say that a more realistic number generally was 10-20cm of snow. Nice new snow whatever the exacty number is and with the sun out this morning it will be a very fine day to be out sliding down the slopes.

Yes the sun is out, a fair bit of cloud still up there but also lots of blue sky and it has started out as a lovely morning with the winds calming down as well. It's staying really cold though as I mentioned before and looks like the coming week will stay really cold throughout... minus double figures in Maruike this morning.

Tomorrow might start clear as well but by the end of day snow clouds should be back and we can expect snow again.

Nighta operations this evening planned at the following resort areas:

- Ichinose Family
