I can't see much of anything at all this morning. Cloud and fog mean that the resort could have moved on somewhere else for all I know! Well, not quite. But visibility is poor this morning. Another relatively mild start but still in minus territory and just a dusting of snow overnight. Oh yes and light snow. Even up at Utopia it is only -4 this morning again.

It looks like we can expect it to start getting colder from tonight, though the forecast for the next few days is a mixed and difficult-to-call bunch..... cloud, snow showers at times, the sun from time to time? I think the best conclusion is nothing extreme for through until early next week.

Official snow depths (15th February 12)
Utopia - 275cm
Chuo - 240cm
Paradise - 260cm
Uwanodai - 180cm
