A bit of a wild day out on the slopes yesterday with snow falling and winds doing their windy thing as well. Kagura is reporting 10-20cm of snow since yesterday though I guess it would actually be more than that. The winds probably blew it all around a lot as well. Bottom line though is that there is a lot of fresh snow out there and it's all lovely and light and fluffy.

This morning it's a much calmer scene than yesterday. In fact, right now there are blue skies around Naeba and the sun is shining down brightly on the lower slopes. Close to perfect conditions surely. It's not as cold as well, currently -3 degrees at the base of Naeba and a temperature of -7 recorded up top.

Early on both the gondolas are stopped as they check things. Not quite sure what they are checking, but checking they are. It actually seems that they will be closed for the day as well along with a few other lifts. Too much snow? Hmm, always have a chuckle if I hear that one. Surely too much snow is not possible!

Anyway for those reasons it would seem that Kagura is the pick of the day today. Should be fantastic up there.
