Strong winds and snow this morning making it a really mid-winter morning here.

A few places are closed (Yokoteyama and Shibutoge, Terakoya, Higashitateyama and Mammoth), waiting for conditions to let them open and some places not fully open with only a few lifts operating. It's difficult to get the updated latest - just called one resort and the guy on the phone couldn't give me a clear answer! - but generally we are on limited operations this morning. The situation will likely change as the weather does.

A real white-out of a morning really with poor visibility as well to add to things.

I reckon the onsens and the Monkey Park down below will be popular choices today!

Tomorrow should be much calmer and it might even be sunny - so should be a good day.

Nighta operations planned for tonight at the following resort areas, depending on weather:
Ichinose Family
Ichinose Diamond
Yakebitaiyama
Kumanoyu
