Winter is back with a vengeance. It's currently -8 with white out conditions that started overnight and have continued all day, completely eradicating all traces of yesterdays warm spell. Strong winds at times have grounded the Kitanomine Gondola off and on throughout the day, but the other lifts have stayed in operation. The big story is the blizzard we are experiencing right now. We've got 10cm+ of new snow pushing us up to the 160cm mark, and that's only the powder that's managed to stay in one place. It's really coming down out there, but the wind is so strong it's piling up the powder on the leeward sides of runs, making some real treasure troves that will still be there for tomorrow's early birds.

Despite the conditions, there were still plenty of skiers out there this morning. For those of you headed out this evening, be sure to keep your face covered until these winds die down. The forecast calls for the snow to taper off this evening, but for now it's still a little rough out there. Tomorrow should be a quiet start, with cloudy skies and snow in the forecast for the evening ours.
