It's about 5 degrees in the village this morning, no wind and just cloudy conditions.

Yesterday was much colder and we actually got an impressive 20cm of fresh snow on the slopes... a nice new blanket that we will be able to enjoy from tomorrow.

Yes, tomorrow is the day when the resort opens up again and this time more lifts and courses. See below for details on what is going to be open. The resort plans to run through until the end of Golden Week (8th May?) from tomorrow.

I hope to see you on the slopes!
