Almost all the runs are open now... even Mt.Nishimori! Come and have a great weekend before the rain comes on Sunday night.

That's correct - rain.

Lets forget about that for a brief moment and say the resort is in fine shape overall. Today we will get some sun shining through every now and again and that couples with generally light winds sure a wonderful day up there, whichever run your on. (Though at the time of writing it does look like the Sailer Gondola is on hold).

The forecast isn’t looking good though. Sunday night the temperatures are expected to climb to +5 and with it some heavy rain. Winds are still expected to increase significantly to the 30-35ms range and stay with us until Thursday. Lets hope that changes.

Have a great weekend on the mountain.
