Morning!

Fresh snow, yippee!!!

Kumanoyu are reporting 10cm. Yakebitaiyama are saying 20cm. My good friend (who I do love but sometimes has been known to.... 'elaborate'...) is saying up to 30cm.

I myself have measured 16cm, so that is what goes on the report.

It was really coming down nicely at times and was still snowing early on, but the clouds have been clearing and the sun is out now. Those long lasting storms are something we are still just hoping to see.

Still, conditions should be very good this morning as the mountains have all had a nice new layer to play with. I'm excited to go out and sample the goods myself.

Not a whole lot on the radar for the coming week, so let's make the most of it. As long as it keeps cold conditions should keep.
