*5cm of fresh snow has fallen in the last 24hrs in Hirafu Village. At 7:00 today the temperature was -4°C. It is a wild morning out there with strong winds…but not as wild as we were expecting, none the less the wind will have transformed the mountain creating all kinds of potential hazards. Please ready the avalanche reports and keep and eye on your fellow skiers and boarders out there. Lift operations may be wind effected so keep and eye of the lift status. On the positive side….there will be deep wind blown powder stashes up for grabs for those who know where to find them!!!
