Good morning from a clear and blue sky Bandai area.

Last night was a starry night and no snow fall.

Excellent blue skies this morning, and the courses are perfectly groomed for the start of the day.

Snow condition is a little mixed but still have some good snow on the upper courses. It also feels rather mild this morning and it's set to get slightly warmer today.

Happily the rain that was on the forecast has seemingly disappeared from the forecast for tomorrow and it looks like it will just be a cloudy day tomorrow. Fingers crossed on that score, we want to avoid rain at all costs.

Unfortunately, it is going to be mild/warm over the coming days and it doesn't look like we can expect any fresh snowfall until Wednesday.

Today is Saturday so it's starting to get very busy this morning. The Gondola is crowded at the moment so try to get to the upper lifts as soon as you can.

There are many hikers going up Mt. Nishidaiten this morning. The resort doesn't tell people not hike up but it's important that you don't go without bringing GPS, map, foods and warm clothes - and don't forget to sign the mountain climbing report sheet as well. It is also highly recommended that you hike with people who know the mountain if at all possible.
