Good morning Grandeco and it is a beautiful morning in the area.

2cm of fresh snow covered the courses.

There's some blue skies above and the courses are in good condition - it should be a good day for skiing or boarding.

To enjoy the fresh ungroomed snow, take the Number 4 lift and try the Lavender A course.
Hiking up to Mt. Nishidaiten will be also nice today. Don't forget to take GPS, maps, food, water and extra warm clothing (even on a fine day like today).

From tomorrow, we enter the three-day weekend. It will probably get rather busy so an early start is highly recommended if possible. The weather should be cloudy with clearer skies at times.
