It is just a cloudy start to the day this New Year's Eve morning in Yuzawa. Grey and cloudy with us having got a bit of new snow overnight. Kagura is reporting 20cm but nothing like that in town, just a thin new coating I would say on lower slopes around town. It looks like we are all open today all as planned around town as well with not much of a wind interferring with plans!

The local forecast for the day is cloud and light snow and tomorrow looks set to be a fine and sunny clear day with milder temperatures. Not that it is really cold today, currently hovering around 0 degrees.

So there we go, the end of 2011. It sure has been an eventful one, and I think everyone will be hoping that the main events of 2012 involve huge amounts of fresh snow falling on the mountains and a good long ski season!

It should be busy out there today and tomorrow and lift lines should be expected.

Have a fun and safe New Years Eve everyone.... and see you in 2012.

I thought it would be interesting to see how the snow depths were looking at this time last year. A look back in the archives shows the following official snow depths at resorts in Yuzawa on 31st December 2010:

Naeba 55cm; Kagura 150cm; Tashiro 130cm; Gala Yuzawa 100cm; Yuzawa Kogen 60cm; Yuzawa Park 40cm; Kandatsu Kogen 70cm; Iwappara 50cm; NASPA Ski Garden 50cm

So as you can see we are doing really well compared with last year... NASPA Ski Garden had just 50cm this time last year - today they have 200cm. Kandatsu was on 70cm and today on 190cm. Let's hope the season continues like this and the new year brings with it more deep snow conditions.
