Winter is scheduled to make an encore appearance and this morning's warm temperatures, sunny skies, and southerly breezes will give way to snow from around noon as a low pressure front moves in from the west. It's supposed to snow off and on through the weekend and we need it at this point because the recent good weather has resulted in daily declines in snow depths. The weather folks say that the front will bring mostly below freezing temperatures for the duration. The wind is beginning to pick up now (at 11 a.m.).

Visibility is good this morning and the slopes are mostly uncrowded. Piste conditions are a bit slushy again this morning. The temperature at the top is still hovering around zero, but it's 6º at the base.

Yesterday afternoon turned out to be lovely, warm and sunny, although perhaps better suited to sitting on the terrace in the sun with your favorite beverage in hand than to winter sports. The slopes were mighty slushy.

In upcoming events, the popular annual Kumado Nighter Cup, featuring night ski and snowboard races, will be held this Saturday, the 14th.

Official resort snow depths:

Suginohara:
100cm
Ikenotaira:
120cm
Akakan:
185cm (at top)
Akakura Onsen:
145cm
Madarao:
150cm
Seki Onsen:
250cm
