Good morning guys and girls.

Yesterday was really quiet and sunny. It feels just like spring conditions here. It started raining a bit last night and continued to do so this morning but nothing major - more like a light sprinkling.

Temperature this morning is around 2c at the base and a high of 8c. The forecast is saying that its going to snow late tonight/tomorrow morning but temperatures seem likely to stay fairly warm.

The condition today is overcast, and it's pretty foggy up on the peaks. NE wind with 1C temp. at 1400 level.

The gondola at Happo One will be closed until 16th March, and there is no night skiing at Nakiyama due to the power saving plan because of the earthquake. The Ropeway/Gondola at Tsugaike and the Hakuba 47 Gondola are also not operating. Please check the lift status before you head out to mountains.
