Hello from Nozawa and it's one of those exciting mornings when I get to report silly amounts of new snowfall.

So it was snowing yesterday and there was 10-20cm reported over the mountain by the resort (that's the numbers in the brackets below in the 'fresh snow' bit). This morning they report 60cm of fresh on Yamabiko, 70cm on Uenotaira, 45cm on Hikage and Nagasaka and 40cm on Karasawa. Doing a bit of sums, I make that a haul of 90cm on Uenotaira since yesterday.

!

I can confirm there has been definitely over 50cm here at base, and I have the prospect of going to have to go out and shovel it around after I post this report. Oh the troubles of living in Nozawa!

Buy yes, forget trying to get exact the numbers are just... big. There's a ton of snow out there again and it will be deep this morning.

Visibility is limited on the upper mountain areas in particular. Goes without saying that while it's totally expected to be stoked by the powder out there, don't get over-excited. Take care. Safety!

What's more, things aren't busy yet. Well they sure didn't seem to be yesterday and this morning seems about the same from what I can see. I expect things to start getting busy from tomorrow and as we approach the New Year holidays.

The sun might join us tomorrow as well with a run of clearer days lined up, and a bit milder too.

December 2014 is treating us well. Let's hope the other months of the season deliver as well.
