After a very cold (-15) and starry night, it's clear today with some thin clouds whitening the sky. 47 report that the lift up to Goryu (line E) is operating at reduced speed, so it must be quite windy up the top. Their park is also closed presumably while they dig out the pipe and all of the rails. That course is very gentle, so the sooner its groomed, the better.

No new snow overnight.

On the events front, from Friday to Sunday its the "2003 Racing Ski Freak Grandprix" at Happo and no, I don't know what that means. Until the 10th, ladies, guys accompanying ladies, and guys that successfully pass themselves off as ladies get 1,000 yen off at Tsugaike. At Iwatake this week (Jan 6-10), if you buy a day pass, they'll give you a voucher for a weekday between Jan 20-31. Every week at Iwatake, its 3,000 yen on Thursday and Friday. They've got a great halfpipe at Iwatake, but it's not open yet :(

The most famous event of the year, the FIS Ski Jumping Competition, is scheduled for Jan 23rd. It's in the evening, so warm clothing is highly recommended.
