Well, the snow we were told to expect last night didn't turn up - and didn't even start earlier this morning so that was a disappointing start to the day. Hearing that it was snowing to the north in other areas of Niigata didn't help!

Kagura are reporting 5cm of snow, though there was none lower down in the village.

It's still not snowing here either, coming on for 10:30am. The good news though is that it is now snowing down in Yuzawa town and surely (hopefully) that is on it's way here and this much heralded snowfall over the new year starts. We are told to expect on average around 40cm of new snow, but possibly much more in some area.

So smiles all round tomorrow morning (or perhaps tomorrow afternoon, depending on how the parties go tonight!)

We are seeing some fairly strong winds today and because of that the Dragondola isn't operating. The Ropeways at Tashiro and Mitsumata currently seem unaffected though. More strong winds are forecast for tomorrow so we can perhaps expect operations to be affected by that at the resorts.

Hope 2009 was good for you, let's see how 2010 turns out... starting tomorrow! Have a good one.
