It is another cold morning with a temperature of -10 degrees on the thermometer earlier this morning, and the mountain is mostly covered in cloud and actually not much snow to report.

Some areas of Yamagata not too far away have been on the national news with stories of the heavy snowfall but this morning here we only have a few cm of snow overnight. We do have the strong winds that we had been expecting though.

It looks like the next few days should bring snow/cloud with conditions clearing up in time for the weekend.

Official snow depths (1st February 12)
Utopia - 210cm
Chuo - 190cm
Paradise - 195cm
