That's a nice surprise... Kagura are reporting 15-20cm of fresh snowfall. Even down to Mitsumata. I wasn't expecting to hear that, especially with no snow down here in town, though Kagura has been known to deliver the goods when things seem like they aren't happening.

The new snowfall up there means that from this morning the Mitsumata area of Kagura is now open to ski and board down. Yey.

Naeba are reporting 10cm of snow, it would seem not enough to open anything further over there.

Well back down here in town, it was raining heavily last night and didn't get that cold. It's mostly cloudy this morning but at the moment the sun is out and it's nice and bright. The clouds may even decide to clear and show us more blue sky later.

Anyway hopefully all this talk of waiting for snow will soon be over, as snow is expected by the end of the day and if those forecasts are to be believed we could be in for the first proper decent snowfall of the season through the next 3-4 days.
