*19cm of fresh snow has fallen in the last 24hrs in Hirafu Village. At 7:00 today the temperature was 0°C. The snow has a nice quality about it and it should be light and dry on the mountain. Although there will no doubt be deep tracks up for grabs be careful out there ass the coverage will still be very patchy in places – beware or rocks and dangers hidden under a thin layer of pow. The snowfall is predicted to continue through the weekend. Life is good!
