Good morning.

It's rather mild this morning and temperatures might threaten to each 10C in Kutchan today.

Unseasonably toasty.

This warm spell seems to be a Japan-wide thing, but thankfully we should be back to colder conditions starting from tomorrow. There is snow on the forecast starting from tomorrow and potentially heavier into the weekend, so hopefully we should get a decent delivery to keep things going.

Niseko Grand Hirafu are reporting a snow depth of 85cm up top and 30cm at base this morning; Annupuri reporting 50cm and 30cm.

The images looking towards the mountain (below) are looking rather dark and ominous right now, but as you can see from the image pointing towards Mt Yotei it's brighter looking east.
