Winter has returned!

It was rather satisfactory to walk out into the carpark this morning and swish through nice fresh powder instead of risking life and limb precariously prancing over an icy deathtrap like yesterday.

16cm of new snow has fallen overnight, which is a great relief and I'm sure everyone will agree with me in saying it is well overdue. Even better news is that the snow is still falling, so let's hope it keeps up and fills in all those gaps and tops us back up!

Temperatures are still relatively mild sitting between -4 and -7.

Little bit of wind out there today and due to this Nagamine No.2 Express will remain on hold for now as the winds are approximately 20-25 knots up there. Down at the base is not nearly as bad with light breezes between 0-5 knots. The Kiroro Gondola and Asari No.2 Express are due to open as usual so that should keep plenty of run options open.

Due to keep snowing throughout the day which is just what we need so get out there and enjoy the fresh stuff and keep those snow dances happening so it keeps falling!
