The wind continues to be the dominant feature at the moment. Things were relatively calm last night but the intensity of the breeze has cranked up again, and it is blowing moderately in the village and is very gusty on the mountain in exposed areas. The Kitanomine Gondola has again been put on hold due the wind and it is unlikely it will operate today at all. The winds will stay with us through until Friday, with Saturday promising to be calmer.

There has been no measureable fresh snowfall overnight and it is not snowing at the moment. Light snow is on the forecast today, but with the wind whipping around there probably wont be much accumulation on the slopes.

On the positive side, apart from school groups on the lower slopes the courses are pretty deserted, so if you are heading out to put in some turns you wont be dealing with crowds.
