Hurray! And ho, ho, ho as well. It's Christmas Day and what more could you want than 30cm or so of fluffy white snow to play in? That's what we have so far since yesterday - which turned out to be a corker with blue skies - and it is still snowing so we should be in for more today. And indeed tomorrow. The snow is set to continue.

One thing I should mention. Kagura is 'fully open', but that does not include the very top (No5) pair lift. That only opens from 25th February. So don't expect that to be open. Also, the run going down back to the car park at Mitsumata isn't open yet, so you need to get the Mitsumata Ropeway back down at the end of the day. But I think we can live without that one!

Visibility is not too bad on the lower slopes of Naeba but the upper two-thirds of the mountain is covered in cloud. Kagura looking like visibility is not too good either. Wind speed of about 5m/s this morning - that's not going to affect the lifts and while it is a cold morning, it doens't feel uncomfortably so. Or maybe that's just the Santa drinks I had for breakfast talking!

Have a good day everyone and see you tomorrow.
