Pretty wild conditions here this morning with snow coming down and strong winds. The strong winds mean that it's limited operations out there. At the time of writing the following areas are closed:

Higashitateyama
Mammoth
Nishitateyama upper area
Ichinose Family
Terakoya

It doesn't seem quite as wild now compared with a little earlier and so I think we can expect some of those to open once they sort out the snow and/or if the winds ease off. Other resort areas have limited lifts running.

I think some people might be taking the trip to the Monkeys down below or taking a leisurely onsen this morning with the conditions as they are. For a Sunday I expect it to be quiet out there. For those that do venture out, fresh untouched powder awaits.

Take care.

Nighta operations planned for tonight at the following resort areas, depending on weather:
Ichinose Family
