Man, can things change right after you file a report (in other words, "Mountain weather is very changeable"). It looked like things were quieting down yesterday, but then the wind, fog and snow all came back. I know some people hiking up the mountains had a quick (and wise) change of plans mid-afternoon, as visibility went down and things got pretty blustery.

Today, however, spring has returned, with blue skies and a warm sun, although the actual air temperatures are still fairly cold. That will change over the coming days as the freezing line heads back up to and higher than Mt. Myoko. Maybe a little rain on Sunday, the various forecasts are saying, although down't look too heavy at this time.

Lifts are starting to close, beginning with Suginohara's No. 3, the very top lift (yesterday I thought it was the wind, but today....), as well as the bottom Romance Lit No. 1—which means, dow't ski all the way down the hill or you're in trouble. And they closed the lift ticket station next to the gondola, so you have to buy tickets up in the parking lot (so don't get let off at the bus stop at the bottom, or again trouble will reign). If I were a grumpy person I'd say something about customer service.... And there's still so much snow! More info below.
