More snow again this morning to report from Madarao Kogen. The resort is reporting yet another 30-40cm of the stuff overnight and there was definitely 25cm+ on the top of the car this morning. It just keeps on coming down - a good thing, of course, unless you just want to take photos of the mountain! We haven't seen a huge amount of it this season so far.

Anyway official snow depth goes up a bit to 230cm (it doesn't go up by the same amount of the snow that fell because of things like packing, grooming, melting wind etc). When you get over 2m though it really doesn't make any difference to the people out there - but the more snow we have the potentially longer season we get, so we always want more.

The snow seems to be easing off this morning but visibility remains limited. Local forecast reports seem to be saying that we can expect conditions to clear up and better weather tomorrow.

Nighta at the resort tonight and tomorrow. Look out for the fireworks!

Lifts currently operating:
All of Madarao is scheduled to be open today.
Connection with Tangram Ski Circus open.

Official snow depth:
230cm
