The wind has stuck around...

Conditions this morning are much the same as yesterday, overcast, windy with the occasional light snow shower. Unfortunately this means that the Kiroro Gondola and Asari No.2 Express will remain closed due to stronger winds up there.
All of the lower mountain and Nagamine No.2 Express will open, so once again this still leaves a decent range of trails available.

9cm of new snow has fallen overnight, however due to strong winds there is a windswept layer on top of a layer of powder, so conditions will be variable. On trail conditions are machine packed.

Reasonably mild temperatures out there today, however the wind chill must be taken into account and thats sitting at around -15.

Over the course of the day the wind is due to drop off, and as the week goes on we are looking at some fine weather and most importantly...... LESS WIND!! :)
