A happy new year to all.

Apologies for the lack of a report yesterday.

Yesterday saw blue skies and warm weather with all lifts running. Snow started up last night around 9pm and continued through till just after noon. Total of 15cm at the base but strong winds up the top seem to have blown everything around and only the middle lift was running at Tenjin today because of the strong gusts.

On the plus side, Hodaigi now have their 1km long beginner piste operational plus the No.2 chair so baby steps over there but progress all the same. Forecast is for warm (perhaps rather unseasonably so) and clear weather through ungtil Tuesday night when new snow is expected.
