Perhaps not the best conditions but the festival went ahead last night on the Uwanodai area of the resort. A fair few people turned up and I would say fun was had.

This morning things have calmed down since yesterday. Just a light wind. Much colder too after that very warm day yesterday. It is mostly just cloudy but quite bright.

Conditions are... ok, I suppose. But we could really do with a new thick layer of fresh snow on top. Perhaps some snow tomorrow and then snow showers on and off in the coming week. Tomorrow will be relatively mild once again before the temps drop from Tuesday onwards.
