Yesterday we went from that lovely start to white-out snowy conditions within the day. Love it when that happens (only when the whiteout happens late on in the day of course).

This morning lots of new snowfall to tell you about. Over 30cm here in village and probably over 40cm on the mountain.

Still a lot of cloud around but the snow seems to be easing at the moment. From here by Zao Ropeway it is still poor visibility but just over by Uwanodai there's some blue sky on show and the sun coming down so variable conditions for the moment. The local forecast is for snow showers today and tomorrow with a clearing pattern from Monday.

Anyway it's a brilliant start to the weekend. Snow should be awesome. Remember to avoid those bottlenecks for the smoothest lift rides.
