Just incredible!! They're saying anywhere from 30~50 cm at the top of the resorts, depending on the resort, but I could swear I shoveled 60 cm off my car this morning! There were strong and gusty winds up on top through the night however, so please watch out for snow drifts as well as wind exposed ridges where the snow has been blown off. We had our coldest temps so far this season last night and this morning, hitting the -11 deg. mark. It should be a little warmer now, but still cold enough to wear an extra layer of clothing. Get out there early to get it before the winds pick up again. Be aware too, that the Happo and Goryu Gandolas are closed now due to bad weather and too much snow up top. They should be opening after they get the snow groomed though, so keep checking.
