Sorry for the late report today. It was a really cold start to the day... in face the coldest of the season so far and the thermometer I was looking here in the village said -10.5 degrees at around 7:30am this morning. Cold!! Just a few cm of snow to report and actually fine clear conditions for the most part today. Some fine scenery on show today. And more importantly some fine conditions out there as well.

It's all change again though tonight as we have moderate to heavy snow overnight and then through tomorrow as well. The cold conditions will continue and tomorrow we can also expect some at times very strong winds. It might be time for a Christmas onsen tomorrow actually if the forecast comes through correctly.

Utopia - 65cm
Chuo - 60cm
Paradise - 65cm
