Happy New Year from myself and everyone else at SnowJapan.

Here's to being able to report lots of snow! Nature need to co-operate for that to happen.

And after a bit of a dodgy start after the finer weather starting the day yesterday, snow started falling and it felt like winter again.

Not as much snow as we would like, around 10cm or so at base areas, with hopefully double and more than that up on the top areas; so it should be a fine morning. (The official site snowfall numbers appear to be a bit wonky this morning).

Actually there's some breaks in the cloud now and even some blue sky - but that shouldn't last all day as further snowfall is due this afternoon, through tonight and tomorrow which sounds good.

Have a fine New Years Day!

Lift operations and open courses appear to remain unchanged.

Basically the upper areas of the resort are open, down to Paradise and Mizunashi runs.

The Skyline course is not yet open as well as chunks of lower areas of the resort.

The Hikage and Nagasaka lower courses are open.... the latter as a connecting course.

I wouldn't be surprised if a bit more opened up today.

You need to get a Gondola back down to base from the open upper areas as you cannot yet ski/snowboard down.

A few more snowy days and hopefully the resort will get to be fully open. I'm totally looking forward to that!
