It is a warmer morning this morning, but cloudy as well rather than sunny so perhaps it won't end up warming up as much as we expected - having said that, the forecast still calls for sun today so we'll just have to see what the people controlling the weather have in store for us today!

Stronger winds may be with us later on today and into tomorrow, when hopefully it will also be snowing. Should be starting to get colder tomorrow in the morning and we might get to see a nice new layer of snow to play in tomorrow afternoon and into Sunday.

A look at the list below shows that some lifts and resort areas will be closing after this coming weekend - but some places will be open through until Golden Week in early May and probably beyond that.

Nighta operations this evening planned at the following resort area:
