Can hardly see anything out of the window here this morning, there's a thick fog out there.

After a wet day yesterday the resort is actually reporting fresh snow high up with up to 20cm on the upper slopes apparently. The place to be for sure.

We are still expecting heavy snow tonight and for the snowy skies to continue through all of tomorrow. It should be noticeably colder as well.

I haven't been myself to look, but according to the resort this morning the Kamoshika Course is now open.

Nighta open until 11:30pm this evening to be followed by sake, hot wine until midnight and then fireworks ---- weather conditions permitting I suppose. Would be nice if they could go ahead with plans.

Whatever, enjoy New Years Eve and I'll be back in 2015.
