Another 20cm or so of snowfall during the day yesterday, and 15cm to move again this morning - so around 35cm fresh snow since my report yesterday once again.

That takes us to over 10m of snowfall observed here at town level since the beginning of the season. Impressive!

(Kagura only reporting 20cm this morning but I suspect that's just not including snow that fell yesterday. I can't make that number up though... so 20cm it is. Other confirmed number this morning is 20-30cm of fresh at Maiko).

Was rather windy as well for parts of yesterday, and it looks like wind is still with us this morning with the Tashiro area of Kagura once again closed this morning and only part of the main Kagura area open. Once that area finally gets opened up again, there's going to be some amazing untouched conditions up there to enjoy. Tomorrow perhaps?

It's good to see that Gala Yuzawa is able to keep open through stronger wind conditions these days as well.

OK so back down here and it's moderate snowfall still with a moderate wind and limited visibility. Expecting the snowfall to get less later on in the day with cloud and possible snow showers at times tomorrow.

Not a whole lot of clear weather forecast for the coming week - there looks like more of a chance of more snow on the way.

General weather conditions might not be the best today, but there should be no complaints about snow conditions for those making it out!
