Yesterday was mild but this morning it's pretty warm. Resorts are reporting temps from 1 degrees to a whopping 15 degrees (Nishitateyama). I think just under 10 degrees is probably the average from around the areas.

It's not sunny though and we have mostly cloud cover up there. Well not here in the Maruike area anyway, though I can see it seems to be brighter and some blue skies over in Kumanoyu.

There's just a light warm breeze.

Today should be the odd one out though as it will get colder once again tomorrow. Not mid winter cold, but more like what we have had prior to today.

Nighta operations planned for tonight at the following resort area:
Ichinose Family
