Surprise, more snow :).

Myoko Kogen Snow Report

Very cold start today with about 15cm overnight. The snow is light, dry and has that amazing fluffy feeling. Within the last minute (8:50am) it has really turned it on and is falling at about 10cm an hour.

This is the view down by the station this morning (thanks to the Myoko tourist board)
