Firstly, apologies for not being able to get a report up yesterday, which was a very good day, with the gondola getting back in operation and a good dump of 12cm of new snow. Suddenly there seem to be more people on the Kitanomine Zone with overseas guests seeming to out number the locals for the first time this season.

Today looks like a good one in terms of weather. The high broken cloud is letting through plenty of sun and just a little wind here at base. The wind will be a bit stronger up on the mountain but certainly not gusty. While there is no new snow to report there is still plenty of fun to be had in the 12cm from yesterday.
