Well, it's started. Not a huge amount yet, exactly in the middle of Niigata Prefecture's forecast of 20 to 40cm by 9 am this morning (at 32cm). The same report for the next 24 hours, though, predicts 50 to 100cm. Yes, a potential meter overnight.

Kind of quiet right at this moment, with some clearing to the south. That's happened a couple of times, though, with the almost-sun being followed by pretty heavy snow. So let's keep watching (keep plowing to make room for more snow).

Lots of accidents around here lately, and it's a bit discouraging. An avalanche death yesterday (slab avalanche, caused by all that wind of a few days ago making for a wind-loaded slope), a boarder who crashed upside and couldn't get out of the snow; a jump high up a mountain going wrong (another fatality), and a broken leg after a meeting with a tree. Three of these were with international guests, something we have not had much. There's a lot of snow out there; there is a lot of difficult terrain.

Personally I think people should stop watching ski videos, or at least realize that the pros really think out things a lot before they jump off stuff, or climb over the peak or ski at speed between trees.
