The clouds did move in yesterday afternoon after that clear start to the day and by evening it was snowing. This morning we have about 10-15cm of new snow up here and it looks like it the snow is set in for the weekend.

Actually if the local forecast is correct, the snowfall will get heavier as the day progresses and we should be in for a potentially impressive amount of snow into tomorrow, when we will also likely see stronger blowy winds making conditions a bit wild out there. So pick of the weekend is probably today, though perhaps those conditions tomorrow might put some people off... we shall see.

So the snow continues to fall this morning and it's fairly poor visibility in all areas by the looks of things. The temperature is currently -8 degrees in Maruike.

Nighta operations this evening planned at the following resort areas:

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