[Originally posted earlier this morning - late appearance due to technical issues]

Yesterday sure was a windy one and I think quite a few people 'gave up' on the skiing and boarding and decided to do other things instead.

Happily this morning the wind has calmed down somewhat - though still windy and still affecting some lifts - just a bit better than yesterday.

From tomorrow it should get calmer still. From tomorrow lift operations become more limited of course with some resort areas closed and others just closed for weekedays (and re-opening for weekends and/or Golden Week at the end of April). See below for updated information.

Official resort snow depths as of Sunday 7th April 2013 AM:

Yokoteyama:
165cm
Shibutoge:
170cm
Kumanoyu:
