The snow continued yesterday and this morning resorts around the valley are reporting up to 35cm of new snowfall since yesterday. The Deep Award goes to Hakuba Cortina this morning with that haul on it's upper slopes. Goryu is reporting 10cm on lower slopes and 30cm on upper slopes with Hakuba 47 reporting 25cm of new snow on the upper slopes. I think we can safely say that whichever resort you choose today you'll be rewarded with some fine snow conditions. Yey!

There hasn't actually been a huge amount of snowfall down at village level. The slightly heavier snow of last night changed to drier snow and it is still coming down now this morning. Probably 5-10cm of snow at base levels and just a few cm where I live. It's the snow on the slopes that matters, though, right?

It is a cold morning and not going to rise much about -5C today in the village, in fact we are forecast to get colder this afternoon and into tomorrow. It is all grey and white out there this morning with generally limited visibility.

Should be great out there!

With all the new snow, we have some rather dangerous avalanche conditions at the moment and venturing out to avalanche terrain is not recommended. Take care out there.
