The snowstorm has finally passed, leaving lots of fresh snow with us and blue skies this morning.

It's going to get 'mild' today with temperatures expected to rise into low positive numbers. And tomorrow, warmer still as with what seems like all of Japan. It should be colder sometime on Monday though and while we might see some rain it should be turning into snow and hopefully we'll get another good reset by Tuesday.

Some lift stuff to explain this morning...

The Sailer Gondola is having some technical trouble it would seem and as such isn't moving this morning. Also, the Central Number 4, Sailer quad and Nishimori lifts are also not moving today as the resort copes with the snow after the storm. Hopefully they should be going again tomorrow.

Planned lift operations (subject to change):

- APPI Gondola
- Central quad
- Central number 2 lift
- Central number 3 lift A
- Central number 5 lift
- Central number 6 lift
- Vista quad

Note: The Sailer Gondola, Central Number 4 lift and Vista quad are usually rested on normal weekdays

Official snow depth:

320cm
