Yesterday I mentioned temperatures possibly warming up starting today. Well, it has been a really cold morning here actually (-6C earlier when I got up) but with the sun out it will be rising fairly quickly. Just a light wind around the village and on the slopes, some cloud but generally nice and clear and the sun shining down on us.

I was just reading the other reports from different parts of Japan and it looks like a similar pattern is going to be happening here -- temps rising later on in the week and it becoming warm. Looks like we can't avoid spring moving in to take over from winter. Lots of weeks left in the season though, through until May. And I'm sure we'll be seeing more snow. But perhaps just not this week.

The 'light up' gondola operations to the top of the resort in the evening have now finished for the season. Nighta skiing on lower slopes continues.
