Once again, the powder gods are smiling upon us. We had great conditions yesterday and the powder was deep and light. The frontside of Hirafu was full of spots where knee to waist deep powder was plentiful, and out of bounds riding just got deeper. Forrest areas had accumulated lots of snow and the main runs were also a lot of fun with good cover. The Ace quad shut down briefly in the afternoon for mechincal repairs while the snow kept on falling. So once it opened again there was enough fresh snow to top up the Super and Ridge areas. It was definitely the best riding for the last 10 days and it looks like to today will be deeper and lighter. The avalanche report notes 15cm of fresh snow at the base which would suggest some considerably deeper snowfall up high.

The weather charts show a low pressure cell still off to the north over Kamchatka which is being pushed away by a high pressure system to our west. The boundary between the two systems is still more or less above us but will drift awayt over the next day or two. It suggests that we should continue to get snowfall during today and possibly tomorrow.

At the time of this report no lifts have begun operation but all except Holiday 3 are expected to run.
