As we were hoping for, it feels like winter again this morning. Much colder in village and on the mountain, strong winds blowing things about including about 10cm or so of fresh snowfall. The winds don't seem to be giving lifts any problems early on with things running as normal.

Cold conditions and snow clouds above are due to be with us until around Thursday, so fingers crossed we can squeeze as much of the fresh fluffies as possible out of the skies. Got to make the most of fresh snow when it arrives now.

Official snow depths (12th March 12)
Utopia - 245cm
Chuo - 210cm
Paradise - 245cm
Uwanodai - 170cm
