It's still snowing very lightly in Myoko today, but clear skies are ahead.

It almost looks like it could be sunny and clear up high: nothing like a little unkai (the sea of clouds) for those climbing up high. Don't forget, you can see Mt. Fuji if you get a little ways up on Ikenotaira or Suginohara....

Looking at my rather passionate posting yesterday, I didn't want to single out our Antipodean friends too much, but I often hear from Australian instructors that they worry about their countrymen because the concept of snow is so different, At the same time, all the major rescues - and fatalities - in the area over the years have been Japanese. Whoever, though, let's get smart when we go out there. Big grin, high fives, happy smiles....

Not all reports are in, but I'm up the hill myself today.
