This morning has surely got to be the warmest morning of the year so far. Very warm.

11 degrees warm just before 9am kind of warm.

Cloud around now but no rain yet... but, it's forecast. Along with some possibly strong winds.

The skies should clear for tomorrow and the sun is forecast (but not as warm), with the rain back over Zao on Sunday and Monday.

Sunday is the last day of the season for some more lifts, as noted below.

With more limited operations, from Monday onwards the resort brings down the one-day lift ticket charges for the 'Final Season' period, as follows:

Adults 3000 yen
Children 1500 yen

Next update early in the week. Have a good weekend.
