Yesterday was generally cloudy and overnight we have just another few cm of snowfall to report. It's another cloudy morning, this time with the top of the mountain not visible from base. Just a light wind but nice and cold conditions to start off with. Snow falling up top? Possibly, as we do have light snow likely during today according to the latest local forecast. From tomorrow not much snowfall lined up on the current forecast until at least the weekend. It will be getting milder once again as well, especially around Thursday, but we can hope for things to cool down once again by the weekend. (Snow as well please!)

There are 3 more nights of the evening Light Up remaining, including tonight. Always sad to see that feature finish for a season and a sign of 'spring' just round the corner. Of course still a long way left in the season to enjoy...

Night skiing itself continues until the 20th March on the Uwanodai area
