An unusually widespread blackout affecting the entire Nagano prefecture has temporarily disrupted operations this morning however as of 930am electricity has been restored along with normal lift operations. This is good as it will be a great day up on the mountain with 15cm of fresh powder recorded on the upper elevations since last lifts yesterday. Temperatures are cold and we are currently experiencing occasional patches of blue sky that will likely increase later in the day.
