More snow to report, 16cm at the base of the resort in the past 24 hours, bringing the total to 24cm from this storm. The snow is forecast to keep falling throughout the week so that total will keep rising.
Temperatures remain cool, down to -8°C at the peak. Thankfully yesterday's cold northerly wind has dropped and swung more westerly, so it shouldn't feel so cold in exposed areas.

As it is equinox day in Japan, the lifts are operating on weekend hours and there is a live radio broadcast, bingo and other events happening in the Mountain Centre.
