Rained first day, then turned to snow next day. Bluebird, and a few cloudy days followed. Unfortunately, the weather is too warm, and snow is depleting. Skiing at Suginohara was fab, and we made the most of the goog weather when it was here.
Staying at the Alp Resort Hotel (true "skiing, ski out") we could make choices as the weather changed. This is our third trip to Akakura, so it must be OK
