Lots and lots of snow, yes this is what we like to see!

It has been snowing since Friday night and according to Kagura they have received over 1m of snow since then. Up to 120cm at their estimations (70-80cm since yesterday). While I wouldn't put the number up there for down here in the village, we have had a lot. Lots of snow blowing, shovelling and moving going on this morning as people out on the slopes enjoy sliding down it. Those lucky souls should be experiencing some top snow conditions as well, the lucky people.

It is still snowing but also quite windy up on the mountain - Kagura reporting a max of 15m/s. The No2 Gondola is moving at Naeba but the Dragondola and a few other lifts up top are closed at the moment due to the wind. Over at Kagura as well things aren't fully open on both ends so it's limited operations there - specificially from the Tashiro Ropeway to the No2 pair and from the Mitsumata Ropeway to the Kagura No1 pair lift. These situations may well change as the day goes on and if the winds calm down.

EDIT late morning --- both main Naeba Gondolas now moving and most courses open.
