I apologize for the late report, but it's because the entire town has shut down (or so it seems). The trains weren't running to Myokokogen Station for much of the day; the highway is closed from Myokokogen IC to Joetsu; and the schools have just announced a closure for tomorrow—unprecedented.

Why would this happen? You might ask, but not if you read these reports. The snow has been coming down all day, since last night. It meant great snow on the slopes today; it also meant a lot of fun in steep places off the beaten paths. A tough hike up for those who did venture into the backcountry (hello!), but some fun skiing down. If not a lot of touring (this was genuine, full-bodied, Myoko powder today). And another rhetorical question: What might be the forecast? Yes, more snow.

I'm exhausted. See you tomorrow!
