Morning all.

It's a mad busy one. Mostly due to what nature is delivering - which is snow and wind.

The snow bit is great. The wind bit... less so.

Due to the wind the Nagasaka Gondola is not moving at the start of the day but all other lifts seem to be managing - though there may be some reduced speed operations going on out there.

Visibility on the slopes, especially the upper ones, is limited. Wind is probably not making it feel particularly friendly out there - as happy as we are to see good snow falling. I think some will be sitting this one out; perhaps soaking it out in an onsen.

Snow is forecast for tomorrow as well though perhaps lighter and the winds will have eased off. So it should be a good day.

Take care out there everyone.
