It was a fine and sunny day yesterday in the region.

Generally very busy too. Some places more than others of course but the popular resorts were at times very crowded. Some car parks were full and actually turning people away! It is no doubt going to be a similar story today. Tomorrow we'll probably see less people especially after noon when people make their way back. Come Monday, it should all be back to a weekday normal.

Anyway. Yesterday the sun was out and there were some fine views to be had. A bit of snow overnight but not much. Naeba is reporting a dusting, Kagura up to 5cm, and there was just a dusting on the car this morning. Actually let me update that, Maiko Snow Resort is reporting 5-10cm.

It's not that cold and at 10am around 1C here in town and just a light wind. Cloud is covering the mountains and visibility looks generally poor on the slopes. Light snow is falling and fingers crossed it will be for the day.

Looks like there might be a bit of a warm up mid week, before what looks like a promising cold snowy front moving in just after. We're missing our usual 'crazy snow' scenes this season so far, so that would be most welcome. Let's keep an eye on that.
