The stormy conditions we were subjected to yesterday are passed and it's the calm after said storm now.

The winds were pretty hairy yesterday at times. Glad that they have calmed down. Not done the conditions out on the slopes any favours at all. I am hearing that in particular the connecting course between Ichinose Family and Takamagahara is now no longer open.

Some changes to lift operations.

The biggest news is that Yokoteyama and Shibutoge lifts will all be closed come 1st May. Yokoteyama is usually the place that remains open the longest and often until late May. This season though the Yokoteyama lifts will close next weekend and the Shibutoge lift on 1st May.

Other resorts that planned to be open until 8th May haven't made any announcements, but it would not be surprising for them to not manage to be open until that date.

If you want a late season slide, the sooner the better is highly recommended!
