Actually quite chilly when I got up earlier on, but it's quickly warming now with the sun out and clear blue skies all around.

These conditions are forecast to go on into the coming week too so expect lots of sun and warmth.

Sakura cherry blossoms sighted as well! Ah, spring time indeed...

The Kokusai Number 1 pair and Saka Kita One quad lifts are also operating this weekend and then again from Wednesday 29th until Wednesday 6th May. They are effectively acting as 'get you there' lifts to relieve some of the pressure from the Gondola.

Happo has started it's 'yuki asobi' (play in the snow) event and that will go on until 10th May when the ski resort closes. Sakka Kitaone Quad is open for that; snowshoeing, snowrafting, snowsleding and Kitaone Onsen also open. The onsen is located in between Indian Summer Café & Happo Banks.
