I think it's safe to say that this morning when looking out of the window it was a bit... disappointing. Was expecting and hoping for more snow than we got but let's move on! Just a thin new layer really though some resort areas saying they got 5cm or so even though there's no change in the official snow depths out there. So not a whole lot of new just yet and resort operations seem to be unchanged.

Good news though is that it is still snowing and we can hope and keep our fingers and other body parts crossed that we get something good to report in time for the weekend. Snow is forecast for the day and overnight tonight, with talk of the possibility of some exciting amounts of snow. I'll try not to get too excited yet and let's see how things turn out.

It's encouragingly cold as well today so come on, let's have it!

It would be great if we got enough for more runs and lifts to open up for the weekend and it looks like that will be possible if this heavy snow comes off.

We shall see!

Takamagahara Mammoth - 20cm
Ichinose Family - 30cm
