Lots of snow this morning and it is coming down very nicely now as well.

The current weather conditions mean there are restrictions out on the resorts this morning. Due to avalanche risk the Kagura to Tashiro course will be closed for the day. Via Mitsumata Ropeway, Kagura is open up to the No4 pair lift and via Tashiro Ropeway to the Tashiro No6 pair lift. Still lots of lovely fresh snow to play in though if you brave the climate... it was a cold -10 degrees down at Naeba base this morning and won't warm up much during the day. At Naeba some lifts closed this morning as they cope with the new delivery of snow, though the Dragondola and No2 Prince Gondola are both operating as normal and all courses apart from those closed for the last few days are open (see below).

So, cold, snowy, poor visibility.... but lovely snow out there on the courses I would imagine. Will be getting out to check myself a bit later. Snow should be with us now through into next week.

Local Niigata forecast has us down for another 15cm between now and 4pm. The way it is coming down, I expect more.
