The colder conditions continue I am happy to report and more snowfall too. The resort is reporting 10cm, I have measured another 17cm since my measurement early yesterday morning so there should be some fine conditions to be found this morning.

It is a cloudy morning. Early on the top area of the mountain is covered in a bank of cloud but it's clearer lower down.

Lots of people are due to be around this (long) weekend, though I wonder if the weather down in Tokyo might affect things. They are warning of 'heavy snow' down there this morning. Of course, for us heavy snow means something like 50cm over a day, not 5cm. Talking of which, let's have some of that! (The 50, not the 5).

Snowfall due tonight and then again around Tuesday is looking promising.

Have a good weekend. See you tomorrow.
