Good days!

I have more than 40cm of fresh snowfall to report this morning as winter really digs in and gives us some fantastic conditions for the end of the year. There's lots of untouched powder out there and with the snow still coming down, conditions should remain really great for some time.

We may well see things easing off somewhat as we move into tomorrow and it looks like it will be a calm, if not cold, New Year.

It has of course been a tough year for many in this region of Japan. Yamagata thankfully came off lightly compared to some of our neighbours to the east - but it is good to see things ending on a high note, in terms of the good snow news for ski resorts anyway. Let's hope people get out and enjoy what's on offer.

Official snow depths (27th Dec 11)
Utopia - 95cm
Chuo - 100cm
Paradise - 100cm
Uwanodai - 75cm
