Hello and Happy New Years Eve!

It is going to be a long, long day for a lot of people. A good day to be out on the mountain for skiers and snowboarders. And a long and busy day for many people working at the resort and around all the accommodations in the village.

Just a small amount of snow since yesterday and we start today with mostly cloudy skies. Though there is a bit of sun and perhaps we will see clearer skies during the day today. Milder conditions are forecast for today too. The snow should be back tomorrow with heavy snow due around Tuesday night into Wednesday.

Night skiing is available daily on the Nagasaka area until 2nd January from 4:30pm until 8:00pm... and extended until 11:30pm tonight. From 11pm there will be some hot wine, sake and soft drinks on offer and then at midnight there will be a fireworks display. I don't know if Nasuki - our fave skiing vegetable character - goes to bed early or not, but if they are up I would imagine they might want to be at the celebrations. Always good to see Nasuki and have a few words.

All the best for the New Year everyone. The reports will of course continue tomorrow. I hope to be bringing you lots of news of heavy snow over the next few months.

Take care and see you soon.

Kampai!
