As I said yesterday it didn't seem that it was that windy out there but anyway those top courses were closed. Apart from that, decent weather conditions but limited courses open.

This morning we are back to open-as-planned with the upper slopes of Nozawa open and also now the winding Rinkan course coming down from Paradise is open which lets you to ski right down to the base of the mountain and the operating Gondola if you so wish.

It was very mild overnight and this morning the temperature has actually been dropping as the hours pass by. Right now it is about 3C in the village, cloudy with spots of rain falling, and wet snow falling higher up on the mountain. Tomorrow will keep the mild conditions but hopefully be clearer, followed by snowfall due along with colder temperatures around Tuesday and Wednesday.
