Yesterday was quite a nice day with a little high cloud and mild temps. Last night though the wind really strenghthened and this morning it is blowing a gale and there's been some sleet earlier on which has now turned to an icy drizzle. Heavier precipitation is expected later through the day and is expected to turn to snow overnight. It has been snowing higher up on the mountain.
Due to the winds the only lift operating in Hirafu currently is the Family Lift. There's a few more open in Annupuri. You would have to be seriously desperate though to think about heading up for a ski in this weather.

Just a note on ongoing reporting for the remainder of the season. As there's generally not much new snow to report at this time of year I'm unlikely to post reports daily. I'll definitely get a few reports up a week though and will report any snow events that do occur.

Current Official Snow Depths:

Grand Hirafu:
Top - 300
Bottom - 120

Annupuri:
Top - 315
Bottom - 140
