The forecast yesterday was pretty much correct with about 15-20cm during the day I would say and another 10-15cm or so overnight -- seems more snow down in Yuzawa town this time round? -- but we still got ours and with the snow over the last few days conditions out are back to how they should be.

Very poor visibility up there today and even down at the base of Naeba. I think a lot of people might be sitting this one out, which means more powder for those venturing out to enjoy. With visibility this bad though you really need to know where you are going. Caution advised.

Mitsumata Ropeway to the Kagura No1 quad and Tashiro Ropeway to the Tashiro No6 pair lift is how Kagura is going about things today, with Naeba open as they have been this week.

It would be perfect if we got another considerably dump today and tonight and then things ease off a bit tomorrow for the weekend, but it does look like snow clouds are camped out above the region and not willing to budge well into next week.
