Good morning - there's not a whole lot to report really this morning. It is a generally cloudy start to the day here. The three lifts at Grand Hirafu and four lifts at Annupuri are open as planned and everything is calm... not much of a wind at all and mild, spring-like temperatures. There's a band of cloud cutting off the top part of Yotei.

I have really noticed the snow starting to get less in the areas around the village in this last week or so especially. That's only to be expected of course, and I think the farmers in the region are all rather keen for it to melt away from the fields quickly now so that they can get on with what they have to do. There's still a way to go for that though.
