Report

Fine weather yesterday, though strong winds were blowing around and some lifts were apparently affected.

There's a bit of a dark feel to the cloudiness this morning, if that makes sense. All a bit grey though I hear there was some sun earlier on. (I got up a bit late this morning!)

Rain might be falling before the lifts close today, hopefully that'll hold off and for now it's just the cloudy conditions. Looks like there'll be no escape from rain tomorrow with it coming down heavily at times. Might be a day to plan around. If you are visiting this week and thinking of when might be a good time, Wednesday onwards seems like a decent chance of clearer skies.

You can of course keep up with the daily weather forecasts on SnowJapan via the individual resort pages on the site. (They are linked to below as well as on the right side of this page).
