Still coming down hard here folks. Around 20cm has gathered on my car since 6pm last night, and we awoke to the unmistakable whirr of our neighbours' snow blowers.

While it stopped temporarily around HakubaNow HQ early evening, it continued snowing over by the slopes, though thanks to the lack of wind, the Ski Jumping Competition was not disrupted. Expect another 40cm of fresh snow on the hills.

Yesterday at 47, in spite of 40cm or so of new snow, onpiste conditions were disappointing. Rather than being bottomless everywhere, the combination of light and then heavier snow failed to bond well with the ice underneath or quickly formed moguls upon it, even though few people were out. I think it will be a lot better today.

Winds are moderate in the village. Wrap up well!
