Yesterday had light intermittent snowfalls throughout most of the afternoon and then fined up overnight. This morning though has seen snow start again and it's been reasonably heavy at times. It's a little warmer than the last couple of days and the snow is a little heavier/wetter down low. The snowfall is expected to continue through much of the day but it will get quite wet by the afternoon down low.
The big news though is that they have finally opened a couple of lifts for skiing in Hirafu. The Ace quad is open to access skiing up around the the Ace #3 lift. At this stage I believe they will be downloading people on the quad to get back to the base.
The next couple of days are going to warm up substantially with an approaching low pressure system from the west directing very mild air up from the South. On Friday we are still expecting a very wet day but I think there's enough snow on the ground now that it should last it out without all melting away. Still today will be the pick of days for getting up the mountain for awhile so get up there if you can.
