Good morning from Naeba and thankfully not a rainy one. Though we did get rained on yesterday of course, which I wasn't too pleased about. Can't complain. Well, I suppose we can - but you know what I mean!

So it's Friday and just before the all important weekend thingy. So what's the deal? I'm glad to report that we can call it 'snowy'. Just a bit of snow really - the resort blog is calling 5-10cm though I can't see that from where I am - and Kagura is also reporting just a dusting. It is back into the negatives and -2 here at base and just feels much colder than it did yesterday.

We still have strong winds though, though it only seems to be affecting the planned opening time of Tashiro Ropeway at Kagura which seems set to open something like normal. (Update on that they plan to get it moving around now, 9am). At Naeba the Gondolas including the Dragondola are on standby and the No2 and Dragondola will open if and when they can.

Remember the big news this weekend is that the top No5 pair lift at Kagura will be open for the (dare I say it while we are still in February) 'spring' season. If you have never tried it, give it a go!

The forecast has snow falling tomorrow and Sunday as well. Just how much remains to be seen - please check out the Yuzawa Now report on here this evening as we will update that with the latest local snow forecast.
