Wed 3rd Feb

A bit like yesterday today…a little more snow than we had yesterday morning and with cold overnight temps the snow is fluffy, but there’s not enough to get the powder fiends stoked. We had some guys drive from Nagano to ride here only to eat the infamous Mama’s crepes at the Gondola and go home again.

For anyone who doesn’t demand knee-high powder to bust out the wallet conditions on the runs will be great with nice fresh snow and a little powder off the beaten track.

It is nice dry snow falling at the moment, just not in quantity, and though we have flurries forecast through the coming days with cold temperatures it doesn’t look at this point like a lot of snow on the way. Hoping we’re proven wrong…

Weather conditions: Overcast with light snow
New snowfall: 15 cm
Snow depth: 210 cm (Goryu base) 320 cm (Goryu top)
