Another fine start to the day and still warm - perhaps not as warm as yesterday but it will still rise during the day well into double figures. Resort operations are the same as yesterday. Tomorrow being a weekday, we'll be back to just the below resorts part open as the spring season continues.
Yesterday was another day of blue skies and warm temperatures as the warm spring conditions continue. This morning there's more wispy clouds around but it is still warm and very good visibility with the sun shining down on the courses. It's another warm day but it rise to the levels perhaps of the last few days - approaching 20 degrees though later on. There may even be a chance of rain later on but the fine weather should be continuing until at least Tueaday.

Happo: Gondola, 3 quad lifts, 6 pair lifts operating on upper slopes (access via the gondola).
Goryu: Gondola and Alps No 1 and No 3 pair lifts.
47: Gondola, Line A pair, Line B pair, Line C quad, Line E pair - still able to ski down to base area.
