It has been a warm day here today with lots of sun and blue skies over Zao.

Tomorrow may begin in a similar fashion, but soon rain and possibly very heavy rain is forecast along with strong winds too. Not so good Sunday either though it will be a bit colder and even a chance of some snow higher up rather than rain but wind does seem to be a feature of the coming weekend...

Current lift operations:

A number of lifts running through until 7th April - Onsen Number 1 Pair, Onsen Number 2 Quad, Shobunuma Number 1 Triple and Shobunuma Number 2 Pair.

The following lifts plan to remain open through until 6th May:

All the Ropeways
Chuo Number 1 Pair AB (every day)
Chuo Number 2 Pair AB (every day until 14th April, then 20th/21st April and 27th April until 6th May)
Katakai Triple (every day until 14th April, then 20th/21st April, 27th-29th April, 3rd-6th May)
