Big day for the white stuff yesterday - blizzard like conditions through midday with wind severely reducing visibility and suspending lift operations.

By early evening the wind had died down and the snow remained fairly constant, falling as very dry powder.

It is a beautiful still morning today with almost no wind, a nice amount of fairly light fresh overnight snow on the cars and roofs and the cloud breaking regularly to blue skies.

No fresh snowfall as of time of writing but the forecast is for more possibly blizzard like conditions later on this afternoon.

Currently a number of lifts are suspended, see below for a detailed breakdown of each resort.

Current lift operations at time of writing (subject to change depending on conditions)

Hirafu family pair running, Ace Quad, Ace Pair 3 and Hooded pair 3 on standby

Annupuri:
Gondola, jumbo pair and Annupuri Pair 3 running. Pair 2 on standby
