Yesterday sure was an interesting one weather wise. Starting off with blue skies and those lasting most of the morning, but we were back to snow by the time things were darker and this morning Kagura has signed the delivery note on 20-30cm of new snow up top.

It is a cold start to the morning and light snow has been falling from the skies this morning though easing off as I write this and it is quite bright now here in Naeba. Glimpses of the sun again? Though not like yesterday with those blue skies early on.

While snow clouds are forecast to be around today and perhaps into tomorrow, it will be the last of new snow for a bit as things are destined to clear up. In fact it looks like we might even get some rain at the weekend - even higher up - so fingers crossed that won't happen but it does seem likely that things are going to warm up a bit come the weekend.

Naeba are hoping to open the famous Daishamen course this weekend and hopefully more - will let you know. For the moment it is still just the No5 lift on the lower slopes that is open.

Nighta at Naeba should open from 22nd December but the resort has decided to open for a one night special this coming Saturday - the No5 lift will be operating from 5pm - 8:30pm.

Kagura continues to be almost fully open.

Official resort snow depth:
Naeba - 90cm
Kagura - 200cm
