And so today has started with a fair bit of fog and cloud. The fog has lifted somewhat now leaving us with just a cloudy morning really. Visibility in most areas is not so bad at all, though earlier on I was up in Kumanoyu and Yokoteyama areas and the upper slopes were not visible from base.

Not as mild as yesterday with temperatures just under zero around the resorts.

Fast forward a few more days of similar conditions and things look very promising for Friday night with some decent snowfall on the local forecast. That would make great timing for the weekend. Looks like we will have to wait for it to get really cold again (early next week?) but there are signs of snow so without getting too excited lets look forward to that and hope it comes off.

In the meantime, out there it is very quiet at the moment. This often happens as we get into March, regardless of conditions and weather! There's certainly no complains about crowds here though, especially on weekdays.

Nighta operations this evening planned at the following resort area:

- Ichinose Family
