Things clouded over yesterday and in the afternoon it started raining in town - it was snowing higher up - and this morning it's was raining but has just started to change. Sleet in places and go higher to get some snow falling.

I was over in Naeba yesterday afternoon and as I was there it started snowing... nothing sticking but I can see on the webcam image that this morning there's a thin white cover over there which is nice to see.

No official word from the Tashiro part of Kagura just yet regarding opening tomorrow, which is when they have been planning/hoping to. I suppose it is all going to depend on what we can get out of today, so will try to update this report later on today with any news on that. It's snowing up there now so fingers crossed.

OK so back to town. It's starting to snow here now and the forecast is for borderline sleet/snow for the day and getting colder with snow forecast for tomorrow.

Can we get our first layer of snow down on the ground here in town today please?

Oh yes as you can see from the list below, Iwappara and Joetsu Kokusai also have a planned opening date of tomorrow, but with no snow yet I think it's safe to say that is not going to happen.
