Good morning.

Well, the forecast said snow from today but we started the day with fine weather and sunshine. It's still there on the forecast, as well as into Sunday and clouds do already seem to be moving in up in the mountains (still blue skies over Inawashiro).

I'm not sure how much I trust the forecasts this year though after some disappointments, so let's just see what nature graces us with.

The A lift is now operating at Minowa, taking us up to the top area of the resort which is good to see.

Check out the beautiful sea of clouds on the photo from Nekoma this morning.
