Well some good news this morning. There was about 15cm of snow to clear from the top of my car this morning. Somewhat frustratingly, the resorts aren't seeing fit to change their snow depths but no fear, that fresh snow is there. So the snow clouds did move in yesterday and they are still with us as snow continues to fall. Not big fluffy flakes, but smaller ones that probably won't add up to much in terms of cm during the day.

Visibility on the slopes isn't generally bad at all though, it's more a case of the mountain top ares being covered in snow. You can definitely see where you're going. Better in some areas than others of course. I am looking at the Kumanoyu webcam as I write this and visibility over there looks much more limited than it is here in Maruike.

So the slopes have a nice new covering this morning, good timing for the weekend. It looks like there is a decent chance of clouds moving on by (or during) tomorrow and then next week looks like it is going to bring altogether clearer weather conditions and mid-week much milder temperatures as well.

For now though it remains very cold with Kumanoyu saying -12 degrees earlier this morning.

Nighta operations this evening planned at the following resort areas:

- Ichinose Family
- Ichinose Diamond
- Yakebitaiyama
- Kumanoyu
