Good morning from Grandeco and we have clear blue skies above us once again.

A beautiful contrast of blue and white.

There was a strong wind forecast for this morning but it's not too bad at the moment - however all lifts will be operating at a slower speed.

According to the forecast, unfortunately there may be some rainy late tomorrow into early Saturday, but temperatures should be going down again from Sunday... maybe even a sprinkling of snow around Monday?

Ski resorts around Mt. Bandai are announcing their planned closing dates:

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.
