Blizzard conditions in Minakami this morning with an average of 20cm on the ground, but up to 50cm in areas with heavy wind deposits. It looks like the wind is here to stay for the most part of the day but should calm down by later this evening.

It looks like tomorrow will be a mostly sunny day but the wind may still be lingering around in the morning. By the afternoon tomorrow the wind should be all but gone and it is supposed to cloud over. The forecast for Sunday is for precipatation, hopefully of the white fluffy type.

Tomorrow should be great on-piste riding at all fields around Minakami with some nice little stashed of powder in sheltered areas. Caution is advised in the backcountry. The formation of a thick ice crust from recent rain then up to 50cm of wind packed powder on top is a good recipe for some decent avalanches, especially on lee slopes that will have been heavily loaded (South faces).
