Pounded with snow today. A real Myoko day!

Lots of snow, lots of wind. This is the first day where we can really say it could be pretty dangerous outside the resort, with deep, unsettled snow and wind loading in places.

And it will be incredibly tough getting up the hill, too (which will keep many away).

Kind of funny reports on the total snowfall from the resorts (and I think sometimes the resorts may understate the total, to not scare away the course skier who's not interested in thigh-high powder). Seki reported new snow of 150cm, which would have meant the depth before this storm was 80cm (and that's not what they were reporting!). And, for some reason, Lotte Arai gave a new snow depth of 5cm, while the total pack went way up.

The good news is, regardless of what the "official" reports are saying, we know there's lots of new snow, and your reporters here in Myoko went out there, poked in the snow, and can honestly state that we found 105cm. Really.
