Some snowfall over the weekend, along with cold temperatures again. Felt a bit like winter!

This morning it is cloudy with some blue sky to see but feels like we might be on for a clear up. Spring is due to be back this week with clearer conditions, sun and a bit of warmth returning.

From today, less lifts are open but lift tickets get cheaper making it now 3000 yen for a 1 day lift adult ticket.
