Well the snow clouds left us another 5cm or so overnight, but this morning they seem to have made a quick departure leaving behind just a bit of cloud but revealing a lot of blue sky as well. It's a lovely morning in the region with bright sunshine really contrasting with the white of the snow. Lovely.

-7 degrees up at Kagura.

More news this morning.

The snow has allowed more of Kagura to open and indeed no longer any need for the bus connecting Mitsumata Ropeway with the Kagura Gondola. For now anyway, the Mitsumata No1 quad lift and Mitsumata No3 pair lifts are operating taking people down to the Kagura Gondola. There are just for connecting purposes and so those Mitsumata courses are not officially open as runs. Also, at Kagura the No10 pair lift is operating this weekend and so the Panorama Course is now skiable.

Over at Tashiro, as well as the Ropeway, the No1, No2, No4 pair lifts and No1 quad are all operating.

Tashiro and Kagura are not connected yet so it's one area or the other.

Naeba of course opens today as well with the No5 quad and No4 pair lifts operating. The whole of the base of the resort is white with a thin blanket of snow, but there's enough artificial snow for a decent length course to be open.

So a fine day. The sun is out, gradually more snow appearing from the skies. Oh yes, winter is (almost, pretty much) here!
