UPDATED BELOW

As we were expecting, a mild night last night and start to the day as well. The resort says in fact that it's +2C on the upper Yamabiko area. That's actually what the thermometer outside my home is saying as well here at base just now.

Today we expect temps to rise to about +5C here in the village and for some rain before it turns into sleet and by tonight hopefully snow - should be straight into snow in higher areas of the mountain. Fingers crossed it quickly moves into snow down here too.

Once we get into snow, it should be keeping cold though with a definite dip in temps tomorrow and through the rest of the week.

UPDATE AT 9:30am:

Moderate to strong southerly winds are affecting things at the moment with the Yamabiko, Uenotaira, Skyline lifts and Nagasaka Gondola on hold.

---


Oops. It seems that in the information below for a number of days I let a typo into the report. It is of course 'Kandahar', not 'Kandahara'. My apologies. Talking of which, that Kandahar area to the left side of the mountain is used for races, tournaments and training and as such only sometimes open to the public.
