Sunen Ni Ichido Snow Storm!

We are now in the grip of a hectic snowstorm…had to dig just to get out the front door! Last night the news was warning of a “sunen ni ichido” storm which translates to “once in every few years”. Looks like the storm has packed a real punch with super deep wind drifts and extreme winds. The mountain will hopefully open tomorrow but it will be a wild dangerous mountain when it does. Not much we can all do today but to dig and stay safe out there.
