It's like a return to winter.

I kid you not, there was over 10cm of freshies out there on the slopes yesterday and close-on whiteout conditions to boot!

Around 5cm or so in the village as well yesterday.

This morning early on it is just cloudy and that's mostly what the forecast says for the day, or rather clearing up and fine conditions for the day...

The following lifts plan to remain open through until 6th May:

All the Ropeways
Chuo Number 1 Pair AB (every day)
Chuo Number 2 Pair AB (every day until 14th April, then 20th/21st April and 27th April until 6th May)
Katakai Triple (every day until 14th April, then 20th/21st April, 27th-29th April, 3rd-6th May)
Paradise Pair AB (every day until 14th April, then 20th/21st April and 27th April until 6th May)
The Yokokura Number 1 Pair AB will remain open as long as there's enough snow.
