I am guessing that this morning is the coldest of the season so far. Extremely cold outside, and when I got up earlier the thermometer was telling me it was -12 degrees.

Visibility is ok this morning and it's just cloudy at the moment with some light snow falling lazily earlier on. Still, forecast is for continued snowfall through into early next week.

Official snow depth on Utopia areas is now up to 2m. I reckon there's a fair bit more than that, but their numbers are probably for the runs now the sides and uncompacted snow areas.

It's a 3 day weekend coming up as Monday is a holiday here in Japan. Traditionally it's one of the busiest weekends of the snow season, so keep that in mind!
