Another 15-20cm of new snow overnight, just enough to cover most of yesterdays tracks and keep surface conditions at their powdery best. The winds have eased and the snowpack has stabilized significantly so the top lifts and peak gates are expected to open later today. I'm guessing there'll be quite a queue at the King #4 lift and a race for peak to get first tracks. The Annupuri ski area has just cracked 2m at the base and is closing in on the 4m mark up top putting it right up there with the deepest base of any ski area in the world currently.
Snow showers will continue today and tomorrow and temperatures will remain well below freezing. Conditions just don't get much better than they are currently.
Tomorrow I'll be heading off early to Rusutsu so probably won't get the report updated till later in the day. I'm sure it'll just be much of the same though with more snow and awesome conditions.
