It was raining for most of yesterday at town level unfortunately and early on this morning it was still raining, though just a few moments ago there was a short blast of some very wet snow falling - and now there are some patches of blue sky on show. So it is very changeable early on. The forecast has us down for a fine day with the clouds set to move on and temperatures rising to around +4 degrees later on in the day.

Courses open at Kagura - Panorama course, Kagura main gelende, Giant course, Gondola course, Gondola line, Family course, Taikai course. Lifts moving at Kagura - Kagura Number 4 Romance lift, Kagura Number 1 Quad lift, Kagura Gondola, Mitsumata Number 3 Romance lift, Mitsumata Number 1 quad, Mitsumata Ropeway.

Apparently there is no change of operations at Naeba planned for today.

At Gala they plan to open the Central Area (apart from Edelweiss course).



Many of the clouds did indeed move on today and the sun has been out for a fair part of the day here in Yuzawa.

I've been talking to a few resorts today to hear their thoughts on the weather and opening dates for resorts. Iwappara opened up on the 12th December last year but, as you can see from the photos just uploaded, there will be no chance of that this time round as there's not much snow there at all and no snow on the lower slope. This time last year Hakkai-san (to the north of Yuzawa) had a meter of snow on the upper slopes of the resort but at the moment it has less than 30cm.

A number of resorts are hoping to open this coming Saturday but unless we get decent snowfalls before then, it is unfortunately looking questionable if they will be able to do that. All of the forecasts are telling us to expect a cold front to move in at the end of the week and over the weekend so everyone is hoping that it will come earlier rather than later.
