Well, this morning I bring news of... light rain. So not the best of mornings with grey clouds and rain falling - poor visibility as well up on the fog/cloud covered mountains. Add some wind into the mix and I don't think we can expect many people to be out there today.

Pretty much that is what is forecast for the day, with things clearing up tomorrow. Wednesday is still looking like it will be a sunny and very warm day.

At Grand Hirafu, the #3 and #4 lifts have been on standby due to the weather conditions, so only the Ace #2 moving early on. At Annupuri, the Jumbo #4 lift is on hold as well.

----

Current lift operations (23rd April 2012 @ 9am):

Grand Hirafu:
Ace Quad Lift No2
King Hooded Triple Lift #3 [ON HOLD DUE TO WIND & FOG]
King Lift #4 [ON HOLD DUE TO WIND & FOG]
The Hirafu Gondola will operate on 28th, 29th, 30th April, and also from 3rd May until 6th May.

Annupuri:
Annupuri Gondola
