The national holidays bit of Golden Week is now officially over with just one normal day before we head into another weekend. So perhaps for some people there's a bit more left of Golden Week.

The weather held up pretty good over the holidays. It didn't get too hot but stayed fairly warm and clear. This morning the sun is out and temperatures will probably rise to around 16 or 17 degrees in the village.

From today until Sunday, five lifts are planned to be operating - the Nagasaka Gondola, Yamabiko quad lift, Yamabiko No2 quad lift, Uenotaira quad lift and Paradise quad lift. That basically means that courses open are the top Yamabiko, Uenotaira.

Come Monday and we'll be down to the Gondola and top two Yamabiko lifts for the last part of the season.

Snow cover is holding up well on the top courses.... getting a bit dirty in places to the side especially but no snow cover problems. Snow has pretty much disappeared from the lower slopes though now.

Here's the list of open courses open at the moment:

Yamabiko A
Yamabiko B
Yamabiko C
Yamabiko D
Yamabiko E
Kokenashi A
Kokenashi B
Yunomine B
Paradise connecting course
Uenotaira Snow Park


Lift operations at Nozawa Onsen:

Friday 6th May until Sunday 8th May:
-Nagasaka Gondola
-Yamabiko quad lift
-Yamabiko No2 quad lift
-Uenotaira quad lift
-Paradise quad lift

Monday 9th May until Sunday 15th May:
