And the snow keeps on coming!

There is about 30cm or so of freshly fallen snow on the tops of cars overnight and add a bit more than that to get an idea of how much we have had since my report yesterday. Indeed Kagura resort are reporting 40-60cm of snow overnight up there. Nice. (That doesn't seem to have been reflected really on the snow depths posted below, but it's definitely there. Sometimes you get the feeling that resorts don't want to give the impression of their being 'too much snow' there - seems strange to this writer, but there you go!).

GALA Yuzawa is this morning seeing a 50cm rise in the snow and that seems about right. Conditions up on the mountain will be some of the best there can be - unless you want clear skies and views of course.

Anyway it is still snowing and seems set to continue throughout the day. Visibility is pretty poor even down in town so it will be poor on the slopes. All resorts do seem to be open and operating as normal though this morning.

More snow is forecast for tomorrow and further into the week.... so no clear sky days lined up in the coming few it seems.

Snow levels around town are now looking very healthy - it had been a case of catch-up to the usual amounts until now but I would say we are looking more like normal now... perhaps not quite as much as we had this time last year but if the snow continues over the next few days we might get there.
