Happy new year to everyone.... it's a snowy one!

Tons of new snow has fallen since around lunchtime yesterday (it arrived all of a sudden) and the blizzard-like conditions continue this morning. At least 50cm of snow in the village, though it's hard to put a number on it because of the strong winds blowing things about. The resort has given those snow depth numbers a boost and Kagura is officially reporting 80-100cm of fresh snow up there! Now that's what we were missing last year!

As you might expect, it's a cold morning too with -7 on the thermometer outside and it seems around -12 on the top of the mountain. Brrrr.

Yesterday part of Mt Naeba had to close due to the winds and this morning the continued strong winds are still affecting things. Tashiro is closed this morning and Mitsumata is open up until the Kagura No1 pair lift. Both the Gondolas at Naeba seem to be moving but some of the lifts up top are either not open yet or moving slow. Expect this to be the case all day as conditions are forecast to continue.

Snow looks likely over the weekend too with more snow forecast for today, tomorrow and even into next week - though perhaps not as blizzard-like as we have had yesterday and this morning.

Once this storm clears, conditions are going to be close to perfection!

Official Snow Depths:

Naeba:
150cm

Kagura:
220cm

Kagura (Tashiro):
190cm
