This is the kind of report I like writing, especially after all that warm stuff going on over the last week.

Yes, it has been snowing and we got a decent amount too. Strong winds overnight mean it's difficult to put a number on it, but there was over 30cm on my car outside and in places it looks more than that.

Resorts that report numbers are reporting the following as their haul of fresh overnight:

Naeba - 30-40cm
Kagura - 60cm
Maiko Snow Resort - 40cm

Some of the resorts are adding big chunks of cm to their official snow depths this morning, in the 40cm range. (Though curiously Kagura have got 60cm of fresh but not added any to the official snow depth!)

But you can get the idea.

What's even better is that it is continuing to snow now.

The strong wind is still around and affecting some lifts - particularly up at Kagura it's only open from Mitsumata Ropeway to the Kagura Gondola so with Tashiro completely closed it's only a very limited area open up there. I can't find any other major issues with lifts, though you might expect some to be moving a bit smaller if the wind continues.

Snow forecast to continue through the day and into tomorrow. Perhaps a break from the snow on Friday, but back to snow for the weekend.

It's great to see winter return. If we get a fair bit today as well the slopes should have all got a good refresh.

Long may it stay!
