Brilliant.

Well, stormy. It will be brilliant once this passes.

Lots of wind blowing fine snow around here in Maruike this morning with a decent amount of fresh snow on the ground. I called a few friends around the area. One said 40cm, the other said 30cm. I'm measuring 38cm of fresh. Whatever number you choose to enjoy, it's a lot of fresh snow on the slopes around the region.

The 9cm being reported by the official site seems... low.

Anyway the snow should be continuing, perhaps easing off later on today.

I would expect more lifts and courses opening for the weekend and will try to gather more information for my report tomorrow.
