Good morning from Yuzawa.

And here we are on New Years Eve already. Time really does seem to just fly by, doesn't it. It has been a good end of the year though with the decent snowfall, helping to really get things kicking things off properly at resorts around the area. The popular slopes were really busy yesterday as is expected and today should be the same.

There is just a bit of fresh cm of snow to report this morning (from yesterday, with 10cm being reported by Kagura). It is a chilly start but it's destined to be rather mild today. And while we are starting off with generally cloudy/overcast skies, sunshine is likely later on. It should be a good day to be out enjoying the snow. As I said it is likely to be a busy day today with people enjoying their last ride of the season. Here's a shout out and thank you to all the busy folk out there at the ski resorts and hotels, keeping it all going! Otsukaresama.

The Southern Area of the GALA Yuzawa resort will be opening from this morning. There's often some nice deep snow over in that area and it always seems to be much quieter than the rest of the resort even on a busy day.

And of course the top pair lift of Kagura should be opening for the season from tomorrow.

Anyway I hope that you all enjoy New Years Eve and here's too a great 2018. Thanks for reading the reports and using the site. There's loads of the season left to go of course - and hopefully loads of regular snow too... and it should be snowing again from tomorrow.

See you in 2018.
