It is a mild morning here but happily we seem to have avoided rain and this morning light (wet) sleet/snow is falling, though there's no new cm to report. Hopefully rain will hold off as temperatures rise a bit during the day, though we can't be surprised if we do get a bit, especially at base.

Naeba has of course been part open for a while already but today is their official "Grand Open", the most important bit of that being that most of the courses on the mountain are now open to ski and board down. A few exceptions mostly the steeper slopes on the mountain.

Nighta also starts properly from today at Naeba (there is never any nighta at Kagura of course), and tonight will be followed by some excite fireworks. Sugoi!

Over to Kagura when I was there earlier it was raining lightly at Mitsumata base, but the resort is reporting light snow higher up.

Go high, is the advice for the day.

Tomorrow might start off cloudy or fine but that potentially heavy snowfall is still due overnight into the week. Would be good.

Official resort snow depth:
Naeba - 100cm
Kagura - 200cm

Naeba and the Kagura resort areas are now all mostly open.
