Good morning and it's another impressive load of snow to report here. 50-60cm of fresh snow up on the upper slopes of Kagura this monrning. It isn't actually as cold as it has been but the wind is making it feel colder out and about.

As predicted, strong winds are accompanying the snow - average 8-13m/s with a maximim of 18m/s meaning that it is restricted operations this morning. From the Mitsumata Ropeway, open up until the No1 pair lift and Tashiro is closed today without it seems much of a chance of that decision being changed.

At Naeba the Dragondola is closed of course, but the No2 Gondola is operating with the No1 gondola waiting on conditions. Early on this morning only that No2 Gondola and the No3 and No5 quads are operating but hopefully things will open up more as the morning progresses.

Resort Operations, 5th January (subject to change)
Limited operations at Naeba due to wind early this morning... could change dependent on conditions
Tashiro is closed. Mitsumata open from the Ropeway to No1 pair lift early on
