Just another dusting of snow overnight and light snow lazily was falling from the skies earlier on. Some blue sky on show now and the sun shining down here in the Maruike area, so it might end up being a fine day.

Not so windy here but I'm hearing that there's stronger gusts in some parts of the region higher up. It doesn't seem to be affecting lifts though.

Snow showers might be close by through tomorrow though with more substantial snowfall likely on Sunday.

Monday is a holiday in Japan so it'll be a busy weekend coming up. After the weekend clear skies are forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday.
