It's mostly about the wind this morning. Large parts of the resort are not open at the moment due to wind conditions. Places that seem to be open at the time of writing include Sun Valley, Maruike, Hasuike, Bunadaira, Mammoth. Ichinose Family, Yakebitaiyama and Okushiga Kogen are all operating just one lift early on while the southern resort areas of Yokoteyama and Kumanoyu are waiting for the winds to calm down.

So limited runs available this morning. It's not the most appealing morning to be out there anyway really with wet snow falling and being blown about (sleet in some areas apparently) as the temperature hovers around 0 degrees. A bit of snow to report actually but it has been blown around and so difficult to put a number on it.

Hopefully tomorrow should see much clearer skies. Next snow around Thursday perhaps?

Nighta operations this evening planned at the following resort area:

- Ichinose Family
