February is going out like a lion (or was that March that's a lamb or a lion?).

Anyway, we started the day with a pretty stiff north wind, and a light fall of small ice pellets. Almost rain, actually, as it's just about 0°C at the moment. That wind is going to pick up later in the day and into tomorrow; time to watch for possible lift closures, especially the gondolas. That wind is going to switch around to the SSW too, so it will be warmer as the freezing level heads up to 1900 meters or so.

If we're lucky it will be snow up higher; we could use one last snow here before the freezing level really heads up - to something around 3000 meters - on Sunday, when it will be warm, and it will rain.

Lotte Arai remains a question mark, as even quite early this morning it reported that only the Sanroku lifts No. 1 and 2 are open, and only the Myoko Long Run Lower open... we'll ask them what the deal is today.
