This morning it is another very cold start to the day. In fact, I would say perhaps one of the coldest yet. Outside where I am now, the thermometer is telling me that it is -8 degrees. With another 10cm or so of snow since yesterday, weather conditions this morning are similar once again.... mainly cloudy, some light snow falling, decent visibility though the top of the mountain is covered in cloud as I write this.

Today is the first day of a three day weekend (Monday is a national holiday in Japan) and so it will likely be a busy weekend on the slopes. There are quite a few people out there now and this afternoon and tomorrow will be the peak in terms of numbers this weekend with the ropeways going up the mountain full and a bit of waiting time - probably best to get up the mountain using the lifts when possible.

The forecast has snow lined up on and off over the next week - nothing major though - and it doesn't look like we will see another bluebird day for a while.

Enjoy the weekend.
