After the lovely start to the day yesterday, clouds moved in as the day progressed and a bit of snow started falling last night. This morning we have already seen changing conditions - a bit of snow, now cloudy, I can even see patches of blue sky appearing every now and again from behind the clouds. Oops, no... covered again. Those clouds are moving fast! So weather conditions today look difficult to pin down. There's a bit of a wind out there today with the trees around where I am now (Maruike) swaying back and forth. It does not seem to be affecting any lifts though.

Tomorrow looks like it should be clearer conditions though. It's going to keep cold though.

Today is the first day of a 3 day weekend here in Japan with Monday being a national holiday. So it should get fairly busy. Right now lift lines seem to be generally moving fast and smoothly.

Nighta operations this evening planned at the following resort areas:

- Ichinose Family
- Ichinose Diamond
- Kumanoyu
