Quick update... rain overnight isn't helping this morning.

At the time of writing just the lower Central Number 1 lift is operating as the resort checks other areas; if and when the Gondola gets moving just the course directly down from top will be opening (so beginners are recommended not to use the gondola).

Hopefully conditions will improve and the resort might be able to remain open through Sunday.

---

Planned lift operations daily until 6th May - subject to change:

- APPI Gondola
- Central number 1 lift
- Central number 2 lift
- Central number 3A lift
- Central number 4 lift

Golden Week

Golden Week is a period from the end of April through early May containing a number of national holidays. Those holidays are as follows:

- 29th April is 'Showa Day' (Showa-no-hi), the birthday of former Emperor Showa
- 3rd May is 'Constitution Day' (Kenpo-kinenbi)
- 4th May is 'Greenery Day' (Midori-no-hi)
- 5th May is 'Children's Day' (Kodomo-no-hi)

What this means for 2018 is that most people will enjoy two long weekends - 3 days this upcoming weekend and then 4 days off the weekend after:

Long Weekend #1: Saturday 28th April - Monday 30th April
Long Weekend #2: Thursday 3rd - Sunday 6th May
