(UPDATED BELOW)

After the limited lift operations and courses open yesterday, we seem to be back to where we were with the top runs once again open today and the Gondola scheduled to start it's day of work at 8:40am.

Here's what the resort reports this morning in terms of new snowfall since yesterday afternoon:

Yamabiko - 50cm
Uenotaira - 40cm
Hikage - 25cm
Nagasaka - 25cm

It's calmer this morning now that storm has passed but there's still lots of cloud hanging around for the moment. So it's not sunny from the start of the day, but we are still expecting conditions to clear up as the day moves on.

A cold start though it's -3 here in the village and Yamabiko area reporting a temperature of -8 degrees as of 8am.

Tomorrow looks set to be milder and we may some rain falling at lower levels before it hopefully ends up snowing once again with snow forecast for Sunday. I don't think we're expecting a snow storm anything like what we seen over the last few days though.

No confirmed news of the resort opening up more tomorrow. With more people surely going to turn up this weekend, I'm expecting the resort to be as good as fully open. Let me emphasise that's just a guess at this stage. I will update this report later in the day if and when I have more firm news on that front.

UPDATE @ EVENING

Yes, so tomorrow will be the Grand Opening of the resort. Which means a few event like things going on and more importantly... the resort will be almost all opened up. All but a few steeper areas seem to be planning to be open tomorrow. I'll have more info in the morning.

A few photos added below from today. What a fine day it was too.
