Yesterday was a powder day. The 20cm of fresh reported here was a bit of an understatement, with more like 30+ on the grommed runs. The morning runs yesterday were some of the smoothest powder runs for the season because it was 30cm on top of smooth groomers. In non-groomed areas it was a bit icy and scratchy underneath, but hopefully more snow will fix that.

It continued snowing through till lunchtime yesterday and then started again this morning. Today we have strong winds coming late in the afternoon bringing heavy snowfalls. Wind speeds of 50kmph plus are expected later today and tomorrow. Temperatures are very cold out there today. The snow falling today and tomorrow is forecast to be the lightest and driest of the season so far.

If you are looking for some traditional Japanese theatre don't forget the free performance of Kanashibetsu Thursday night. Book at the Tourist Centre at the bottom on the Kitanomine Gondola.
