Morning.

With the milder conditions continuing there's some rather hard and crunchy conditions out there at the moment especially early on before it warms up during the day.

But I do also have better news - winter should be returning as early as tonight! :)

Monday is a national holiday in Japan and so the upcoming weekend is a long one for many. It is another of the peak weekends of the ski season in Japan.

Would be great if we could have a good decent layer of snow to freshen things up before then. And it looks like that should happen...
