I'm waiting for the official report here; 9:30 and it still isn't out which is terrible on a completely bizarre weather day like today.

Luckily the Akakura Kanko sends out its own report, so I can tell you that only the No. 1 and 2 lifts are running. Everything else is closed due to the crazy strong winds coming in from the west at base level.

Also weird because the Coast Guard report shows winds offshore coming in strong from the east, which would make sense with the massive cycle bringing snow to the Pacific side. Right here, now, at this moment, the word in Myoko is driving rain - but don't panic, as the freezing line should come down later today from nearly 1500 meters to sea level. This means much colder temperatures, and very possibly some good snow (but I hate to even risk jinxing it by saying anything).

I'll try and get as much information as I can from all the different area websites - a bit of a pain, to be honest, but part of that outstanding SnowJapan service (I'm not being sarcastic; we take this seriously!)
