After the blue skies of yesterday this morning it is a very grey and cloudy start to the day. No wind, just cloudy and a temperature similar to the one we saw yesterday early on. I can see the top of the resort from base.

About the temperature though, the bite of the cold has already eased up and by the end of today it will be a fair bit warmer if the local forecast is to be believed. At the moment the top runs of the resort are saying it is -6 degrees up there. Tomorrow should be sunny and we might see the temperature nudge up into positive numbers at base.

It's the last day for the evening time 'Light Up' gondola operations to the top of the mountain. 7:30pm tonight is your last change to get up there at night.

Official snow depths (29th February 12)
Utopia - 275cm
Chuo - 220cm
Paradise - 260cm
Uwanodai - 175cm
