Bit colder this morning and just a cloudy start to the day.

Winds are still with us here this morning and going to affect lift operations again.

The bottom part of Annupuri with the Gondola closed as of 10am - it was moving until just before the the wind has put a stop to that! Here in the Hirafu area, the top King Number 3 and 4 lifts were on hold at the beginning of the day... the Number 3 lift did start moving around 10am but may well need to be stopped if the winds whip up more later on in the day.

Looking ahead on the forecast, it's a real mix of conditions as the seasons wrestle with each other to take control. We'll probably get some rain but there's a decent chance that there will be some more snow fall in the season yet.
