More light snow last night and this morning which has given the slopes a topup but still not the heavy snow that pushes those snow depth numbers up to the levels we are used to. While most of the runs and lifts are open as they have been for a week or so now, we could still do with that heavy dump of snow.

A few of the resort areas in the northern part of Shiga Kogen (Okushiga, Yakebitaiyama, Ichinose) are reporting an increase in snow depth, though the ones further south (Kumanoyu, Yokoteyama) aren't this morning.

Tomorrow the first "First Tracks" of the season will be had at Yakebitaiyama allowing people to ride the gondola from 7:30am (instead of the normal opening time of 8am) at an extra cost of 1000 yen for hotel guests and 1500 yen for non hotel guests. Now if they did that from 6am, I might be tempted...

The following resorts plan to be open for nighta tonight:
Sun Valley
Maruike
Mammoth
Ichinose Family
Ichinose Diamond
Yakebitaiyama
Kumanoyu

Official resort snow depths as of 2nd January 09:

Yokoteyama:
95cm
Kumanoyu:
90cm
Maruike:
80cm
Sun Valley:
80cm
Giant:
80cm
Mammoth:
90cm
Ichinose Family:
90cm
Yakebitaiyama:
120cm
Okushiga Kogen:
120cm
