Good morning.

Heavy snow alert!

This is what we want. This morning Kumanoyu are reporting 50cm of fresh and Yakebitaiyama are reporting 40cm. I am measuring 38cm.

Whatever - loads of fresh snow around as this mid-winter storm continues (and blows the snow around too) - and there's more left in the tank through tomorrow if the forecasts are right.

(So how can resort areas be reporting as little as 25cm snow depth, you may ask? Answers on a postcard to those people please! I'll refrain from telling you my theory!)

More now opening up with all areas now at least part open and most lifts moving... as you might expect as New Year fast approaches.

With another day or two of snowfall, perhaps we'll be close to being fully open.

Resort areas declaring themselves as fully open:

- Kumanoyu
- Ichinose Yamanokami & Diamond
- Mammoth
- Tannenomori
- Okushiga Kogen

That doesn't give the whole picture of course as some of those are small areas - a bigger area like Yakebitaiyama is mostly open and they have all their lifts moving.

Anyway, some more snow please. Let's get into full swing!
