Good morning and Happy New Year.

There has just been a bit fresh snowfall from this morning - perhaps not as much as we thought we might get, just under a few cm - and this morning it is continuing to snow lightly and more snow is on the way. The snow quality is very light.

This morning it is now snowing in all parts of the Ura Bandai area.

According to the weather forecast, until tomorrow it should be snowing but there is actually some talk of the chance of rain for tomorrow afternoon for a short while - I can not (do not want to) believe this! But it does looks like we can expect a bit milder conditions. We shall see.

The Gondola and three hi-speed lifts are operating at the resort this morning as they have been. Unfortunately, the advance course 'Melissa' will close today because of there not being enough snow to remain open.

Still, 70% of the courses at the resort do remain open and the course from the top to base is about 4000 meters long. The Snow Park is open on Lavender B course with 5 meters kicker, 5 meters tabletop and other box items.
