Those cold temperatures are staying with us and it's a nice -8C this morning in the village. A temperature of -13C being reported from the Chuo area of the resort this morning. Certainly keeping the snow in good condition.

This morning some cloud but lots of blue sky up there and the sun shining down on the mountain. It seems a while since I have been able to clearly see the top of the mountain - good visibility all round today, and hardly any wind as well.

The forecast for the weekend is a variable mix of clear, cloud and snow showers. Suitably vague?! We'll just have to see what nature brings us.

It will probably be busy out there as it's a three day long weekend as Monday is Coming of Age Day in Japan. So lots of weekend visitors expected. It applies to every weekend (and every day I suppose) but more than ever... early start is a good idea if possible!
