Only the one Chuo pair lift is running today and the main slope is gradually deteriorating but there are still folk up there.

We had quite a bit of rain yesterday and overnight and more is expected tonight and quite heavy tomorrow evening. However, up to 12 cm is forecasted at mid-levels from Sunday midday so, we might just make it to the 5th when the lift is due to shut being the last day of Golden Week.
