The rain eased off at times yesterday but for lots of the time it was falling heavily from the skies unfortunately. End result is that after all that snow at the weekend, a fair bit of it has gone but like I think I said yesterday there is still a fair bit of snow around on the ground around town.

This morning wet snow is falling in Yuzawa and Kagura are actually reporting 10cm of fresh snow up on their slopes. For the day today, snow on and off - perhaps sleet at times - all a bit wet, but the snow that we have been looking forward to over the weekend still seems set to hit. Starting later on today and potentially heavy snowfall through tomorrow and into Sunday. So I'll look forward to those reports.

Resort news! Two resorts opening for the first time today.

Iwappara are opening from this morning - just the central area Number 2 and 3 pair lifts for the moment, with the West Side Course and the Romance Course open meaning 1300m of skiable course.

Iwappara's partner Joetsu Kokusai to the north in Minamiuonuma (about 20 minutes drive away) is also opening today. They will have 4 lifts operating - the Nagamine Quad, Panorama Quad, Panorama Number 2 and 3 Romance lifts. Courses open will be Nagamine Number 1, Mina Number 1, Panorama 3, Panorama forest courses.

Tomorrow Naeba and Maiko Snow Resort plan to open for the season as well.

Naeba will have a fairl large area open, and downhill from the Number 2 Gondola will be possible as well as part of the left side lower slopes of the resort.

Maiko plans to open the top Okusoeji area, accessed via the Gondola.

A large delivery of snow would certainly help things along!
