I have another 10cm of fresh snowfall to report this morning from here in Zao. Good to see that, but we of course need more.

Light wind and snow continuing to fall this morning with limited visibility on the mountain with cloud and foggy conditions.

Forecast has consistent snowfall over the coming week. What we want is consistent heavy snowfall!

Remember that tomorrow is also a holiday in Japan, so it will be busier than a normal Monday.

Photos below are were taken yesterday... it was busy out there.
