Well, not much good to report this Saturday morning I'm afraid.

No snow, light rain, temps well above zero and strong winds!

A fair few lifts not operating this morning because of the winds. The Kurohime and Utopia areas are closed this morning and part of Paradise as well. Hopefully the wind might ease off to allow them to re-open but the forecast is for a generally windy day so perhaps no luck with that. Tomorrow will hopefully be better though moderate winds are still likely to be with us. Just hope that the lifts can get moving again.

A good day for an onsen.
