It's colder this morning. Even got a bit of fresh snow!

Here in Maruike we have some thick fog making visibility down to 10m or so - can hardly see a thing. And it is snowing too though no new cm to report. But a nice surprise all the same especially as looking at the forecasts yesterday this was not expected.

I have added the planned closing dates for lifts at the Okushiga Kogen resort area this morning - see below.

Nighta operations planned for tonight at the following resort area:
