Perhaps this morning isn't quite the blue sunny conditions we were told to expect. I can see quite a lot of blue up there in Naeba but there is a fair amount of cloud cover as well top of mountain and over at Kagura - perhaps destined to clear up as the morning moves along. Actually there has been a lot of cloud up there the last few days. Yesterday, for the most part it was poor visibility again - similar to the day before we got a bit of bright and clearing skies in the middle of the day but the clouds moved back in again.

Conditions were great out there though.

So this morning a fine but cloudy start. And Kagura report 5cm more since yesterday. Naeba report 10-20cm. I report about 5cm at base. So take your pick!

A bit of a rush this morning to get those first tracks on the nice new snow.... if it warms up I think we can expect conditions to get a bit heavier later on today - and there can't be that many fresh snow days left in the season.

After today, Naeba will be open for four more days - next weekend and the weekend after - with Kagura battles on quite easily until the end of May of course.

Resort Operations, 8th April (subject to change)
