Light snow this morning and brighter than it was yesterday, at least here in the area I am (Maruike) and at the time of writing. Winter-like conditions continue though this morning and we have had more snow since yesterday and just now snow is falling from the skies and should be for the day according to the forecast.

It's the weekend of course and so more lifts open around the place for today and tomorrow - see below for the official planned openings. The slopes are certainly busier this morning than they have been the last few weekdays giving the place a much more lively feel. Not enough to be causing any kind of congestion at the lifts or on the courses though.

Looking ahead, spring looks set to return this coming week. Forecast for tomorrow is sun and actually for a few more days after that as well and it will start getting milder as well.

Official resort snow depths as of Saturday 7th April 2012 AM:

Yokoteyama:
200cm
Kumanoyu:
190cm
Ichinose Family:
160cm
Yakebitaiyama:
200cm
Okushiga Kogen:
