Good morning.

Heyupp... blue sky? Yup I was told we might get snow but it's a fine start to the day. Then again, some snow is falling! Weird. I think the snow clouds are just about staring to move in. So hopefully tomorrow will be a much clearer picture of 'snow'...

It might get windy too. So if you are here, you'll need to check with the resort folk.

Naeba have announced that from Monday 16th March, there will be a scaling back of operations... there will be some restaurants and shops closing (not all of them) but the important info for skiers and snowboarders is that the resort will be operating the following lifts:

- Prince Number 2 Gondola
- Number 5 high speed lift
- Takenokodaira pair lift

See the image below. Obviously that may well change again depending on conditions etc.

And please note that the above plans are valid from 16th March. Things carry on as normal until then.
