A bit of a wild day today out there. Snow, blowing winds and poor visibility basically for the most part though there have been short periods when the clouds have broken for a few moments during the day. It's a very cold day as well with the wind making it very probably feel actually colder than it is in terms of the numbers.

I think that more than a few people will have opted to take an onsen rather than brave the elements.

Anyway there has been new snowfall since the last report and while the official snow depths at the resort have only increased slightly, there has actually been more fall - I had to scrap 15cm or so of snow off a car this afternoon.

Forecast? Just to remind you that on the resort page on this site (there is a link to it in the right column of this page) you can see a 6-day detailed forecast that is updated multiple times each day. Right now that forecast and other local forecasts are for the snow clouds to weaken and perhaps just bring a slight snowfall tomorrow, followed by clearer weather on Saturday and then more snow around Sunday. Staying cold though in the minus double digits area.
