Low cloud is shrouding Mt Kenashi this morning, making visibility poor at the top and overcast conditions in the village. No new snow has fallen overnight. The snow depth has fallen 10cm down to 220cm up on Yamabiko and 5cm down to 160cm for Uenodaira. It is currently -1 degree in the village and -3 up the top where there is a light southwesterly of around 15 km/h.

Yesterday saw colder conditions which resulted in the melted surface of a few days ago freezing solid and becoming quite icy in places, especially up on Yamabiko. The one or two centimeters of snow that did fall just lightly dusted the hard packed base. Also, the sand that came with last week's snow storms is now giving the snow pack a distinct yellowish tinge. The lower slopes are showing signs of wear and tear with the ground getting very close to the surface in a few places.

Today and tomorrow are forecast to bring cloudy conditions but no real precipitation, except for some light snow on Saturday night. Sunday night should also bring some snow, with around 10cm forecast to fall by Monday afternoon. The freezing level will fall below the bottom lifts so it should snow in the village as well.

All lifts will operate except Mizunashi, Yunomine, Challenge and Utopia.

All courses are open except Kurokura and Hachiman.
