Just got dumped on yesterday in Western Gunma. So much fresh snow, up to my knee on the groomed run, I don't know a better way to measure it than that. I hope that storm moves in all y'all direction.
In the mean-time, I need some of your collective wisdom about Yamagata... I'll be going there March 17-20th. I've heard from various people that Zao Onsen is the place to be, and also home to some amazing scenery (see "snow-monsters"), but there is no shortage of skijo nearby.
Here's a list of the all the resorts:
Yamagata Ski Resorts - Snow Japan - Ski and snowboard resorts in Yamagata
Has anyone here had any experience in Yamagata snow? Let me know!
