Visibility outside this morning is really bad with snow falling and hardly any of the slopes even visible from base. Big flakes of snow are really coming down hard at the moment and while we have just a few cm of snowfall to report, if it continues falling like this it will soon pile up and be more.

About 0 degrees in the village this morning so not so cold really. The biggest issue today is going to be the fact that you won't be able to see where you are going out there. I guess it's one of those days when people might choose to make a late start and/or chill out in the onsen.

It's not going to last long though and we'll probably have clearer skies tomorrow and then a few days of warmer temperatures.
