Morning everyone - another weekend!

I have 2cm of fresh snowfall to report to you this morning on the ground here at base.

It's a beautiful crisp morning.

The clouds have for the most part disappeared, though Mt Yotei appears to be wearing a white cloud beanie early on (and looking rather charming for it too).

But it's mainly lovely blue skies all around and bright sunshine.

A beautiful morning.

All areas ready to go. Who wouldn't want to be out there skiing or snowboarding this morning.
