Resuming transmission here.... It's a warm morning here with the temperature up to around minus two already. The sky is quite clear and snow is not forecast until this evening. They are saying 10cm or so by tomorrow morning for all you weekend warriors.

Thanks to Wednesday's snow, the courses are in excellent condition.

Work continues on the Goryu halfpipe that's in between the two centers at the bottom. It's scheduled to open on Jan 20. You have hike it, but they usually keep it in good condition. Iwatake have also opened their pipe, and though you have to pay an extra 500 yen to use it, it's a goodie. They've set up a park below the pipe as well. There's a kicker there named after Japanese Olympian Miyawaki Kentaro, and if it's anything like the ones I've seen in previous years, you should be able to go pretty big off it.

Happo have apparently built a "board park" in the Sakka area that's on the opposite side to Nakiyama, their normal pipe/park zone. I doubt the jumps will be very big, but it's somewhere to practice all the same.
