The sun is out once again this morning and with the warm conditions of late snow around town in particular has been very clearly retreating. Always a sad part of the season to see all that lovely snow dry up - though we need to be thankful at the same time! Still a lot of snow on the mountain of course.

Anyway this morning fairly strong winds are preventing the top lifts at Annupuri, Village and Grand Hirafu from opening - perhaps this afternoon it will calm down.

So what's going to happen over the next few days? Well, we are expecting rain to be falling tomorrow morning - higher up as well. It's going to keep colder than it has been though and cool down more which will hopefully bring us snowfall.
