The warm and sunny weather continues - it's been beautiful weather the however many days or so (seems like forever).

Late weekend as we enter early next week there are signs of colder temps and even some rain.

I have checked and updated the lift operations info below. Beyond next Wednesday (which is the last day of the Golden Week holidays here in Japan), just a few lifts will be operating until the following Sunday and then after that it's down to Yokoteyama and Shibutoge - and who knows how long they will continue to be open! Any joint tickets will only be able to be used until Wednesday... after that it's individual ski-jo tickets only.
