Yesterday was a bit of wild day out there with poor visibility, blowing snow and strong winds - which did indeed hamper the operations of the resort... a fair few lifts including all of Paradise and Kurohime areas as well as other parts of the resort (including some of the Utopia lifts) had to stop moving. Anything over 1300m was basically closed. It was a day for a good soak in an onsen!

This morning it is all change once again. It is still cold, -4 in the village, but only a slight wind, quite a lot of cloud but breaks in the cloud and some sky and sun showing through at times, and best of all a few cm of fresh snow. Nice.

In terms of resort lift operations, things will be back to normal this morning.

Cloud and perhaps a chance of light snow through until Wednesday when we might see some clearer weather over Zao.

Chuo area:
190cm

Paradise area:

Utopia area:
