Apologies for the missed report yesterday - but there was no fresh snow to add to the numbers.

Some strong winds blowing around yesterday morning and the gondola as well as quad lift had to be halted. The Number 1 Gondola got moving from around noon.

Cloudy skies until just before lunch and then snow started falling... fairly heavy (as in consistency) snow and it continued until evening. It was relatively mild.

This morning I have 12cm to report and I think that's your lot for a few days -- clearer skies are likely over the weekend. Hopefully some more of those tree runs will be open as planned...

Monday is a national holiday in Japan.

Next snowfall due around Tuesday.
