It is not really a report today as it is late, so it is more of a wrap up of the day. Unfortunately the Kitanomine Gondola did not get going due to wind. While at base it was pretty calm, mid mountain was breezy and up on the peaks there were moderate winds. Overall it was a mild day with temperatures creeping up just above freezing, which happend yesterday as well. The result of this is that those nice fluffy powder areas at the sides of runs on the lower half of the mountain have melted and firmed up as they have refrozen. Higher elevations should have fared better. Light varied between very flat in the morning to good later on around lunch time. We should see light snow continue through to Wednesday.
