This is good. Well, not if you want clear blue skies. But if you want fresh snow, you'll be happy this morning. It is really coming down nice and heavy as I write this report. It only started this morning so seemingly took a detour on it's way here, but snowing now. So not much in terms of cm yet but it is the kind of snowfall that quickly mounts up. More more more, please!

So poor visibility out there, winds picking up as the morning progresses, though curiously not crazy cold conditions. It's cold of course but not as cold as you might expect... just -3 at the moment in Maruike. Almost t-shirt weather! Well, maybe not.

Anyway snow forecast for the day and perhaps into tomorrow. We might see a break in the snow and clearer skies tomorrow in the daytime but we are scheduled to be back to snowy conditions around Wednesday.

Nighta operations this evening planned at the following resort areas:

- Sun Valley
- Maruike
- Takamagahara Mammoth
- Ichinose Family
- Ichinose Diamond
- Yakebitaiyama
- Kumanoyu
