Sorry for the late report. We had to dig ourselves out....

Too much snow!

Over 70cm of snow at the valley level and reportedly up to 140cm of new snow in the last 24 hours in the upper mountains. Pretty mad numbers those, but with the way it has been coming down.....

The expressway is currently closed from Tokyo to Minakami and all train are also not in operation. There has also been several avalanches that have covered the main road in Minakami blocking traffic. The road connecting Gunma with Naeba in Niigata is also blocked this afternoon I believe due to snow blocking the road.

The snow is currently still falling although quite light at present it is expected to strengthen this evening bringing another 20-30 cm to the valley. This is lilely to cause further issues for transportation and resorts.

Be careful.
