Although it's a cold one, it can't be called snowy. It snowed several times so far but not in the last several days. Day temperatures vary between slighlty positive and slightly negative, morning temperatures are steadily negative.
Tomorrow and the day after tomorrow are expected to be really warm for the season with day temperatures possibly reaching double digits on Saturday. The forecast predicts it'll be getting colder from Sunday, and we should see some fresh snow. In the meanwhile we'll have some rain (fingers crossed it's a mistake of the forecast!)
Rusutsu Resort is scheduled to open on Saturday, but we'll need a good snow fall beforehand to make it happen.
