Good morning from a blue sky Grandeco.

It was a starry night with no new snow fall.

There was a strong wind forecast but lucky the wind is quite mild at this moment and all lifts are operating as a normal speed. Temperatures are keeping low and the courses are perfectly groomed.

According to the forecast, it will be sunny day until Friday, cloudy and occasionally the chance of rain on Saturday and Sunday! Good news is that there is a bit of snow on the forecast for Monday.

Because we are now into spring mode, ski resorts around Mt. Bandai are starting to announce their planned closing dates. Here's the news I have for the moment:

Listel Ski Fantasia - already closed (on 12 March).

Numajiri / Inawashiro resort / Inawashiro and Minero ski resorts - until 21st March

Alts Bandai / Urabandai ski resorts - until 27th March.

After 27th, resorts that remain open in the region will be Grandeco, Nekoma and Minowa.

Nekoma will be closed between 19th-21th and 26th-28 Apr but these resorts all plan to be open until 5th May ---- but whether they can do that or not will totally depend on the snow levels of course, which are less than usual and less than expected. We'll just have to see how things develop over the coming weeks.
