Fantastic day yesterday up on Kagura. The sun was out for pretty much all of the day in the region and while it was relatively mild the snow conditions kept really great out there. And it wasn't that busy either really.

This morning is a little colder and up at Kagura is it -5 degrees while down in the Naeba village area it actually about the same. Or it was earlier, it is closer to 0 now. The sun is out from time to time but a generally cloudy situation this morning and no wind.

We might get some snowfall later on in the day and overnight into tomorrow.

What about that megaload you have been talking about, I hear you asking! It's still on it's way though it seems to have taken a stopover somewhere on the way - perhaps to fuel up with more snowflake supplies? - as it is now due to snow heavily from sometime on Saturday. It still looks like it should be a snow deposit of possibly epic proportions though, so no need to worry I think. Maybe not what some people want for their Christmas day skiing, but I'm sure more than a few will be happy.

And it will be great to really get the whole of the mountain open. Dragondola is due to open tomorrow though I haven't heard much news on that in the last few days. Hopefully with snow tonight that will go ahead as planned and link up Naeba with Tashiro.

Tomorrow is a national holiday but more importantly actually marks us entering the 50th Anniversary year of Naeba skijo. So many congratulations Naeba. It sure has changed a lot over those 50 years...
