The sun is out and we have blue skies all around the region this morning - it has certainly started off as a beautiful day and may well be until the lifts close though cloud is due to move in later on.

It is relatively mild too with a temperature of around +4C here in town early on, and a high of +7C likely.

Up at Naeba, they are now operating the Prince Number 2 gondola and opened the Daishamen course, so you can now slide down the mountain to base. It is still fairly limited though as they wait for more snow to get things open up some more.

This morning, Iwappara has opened for the season with just the No2 and No3 pair lifts moving. From tomorrow I can confirm that Yuzawa Nakazato, Yuzawa Kogen, Kandatsu Kogen, Maiko Snow Resort and Joetsu Kokusai all intend to part open up for the season as well - so it is great to finally get lifts moving near town level. Even though they will all likely be part openings, it feels like the season is about to start proper. We're still early as well.

The forecast for the weekend still tells us there's a chance of rain, but happily at the moment it does not look like it will be a consistent and heavy downpour. It still looks like it will be rather mild again though tomorrow, so all we can do is hope for the best.
