Good morning and Happy New Year!

The year has started off cloudy with now new snow to report overnight. We did get a bit of snow yesterday but it will just have been a light covering. It looks like we should be seeing some snowfall by the end of the day and into tomorrow, but it is a fairly mild start to the day and a high of around +4 degrees is forecast. Perhaps we will see clearer conditions on Tuesday and then back to the snow on Wednesday.

With all the parties going on last night it might take a while for courses and lifts to fill up but it should be another busy day out there today.

Official resort snow depths @ 1st January 12, AM:
Mt Naeba:
170cm
Kagura:
240cm
Kagura - Tashiro:
220cm
GALA Yuzawa:
210cm
Kandatsu Kogen:
180cm
NASPA Ski Garden:
180cm
Iwappara:
150cm
Yuzawa Kogen:
200cm
Yuzawa Park:
190cm
Yuzawa Nakazato:
140cm
Ludens Yuzawa:
160cm

Ishiuchi Maruyama:
210cm
Centleisure Maiko:
250cm
Joetsu Kokusai:
200cm

I thought it would be interesting to see how the snow depths were looking at this time last year. A look back in the archives shows the following official snow depths at resorts in Yuzawa on 31st December 2010:

Naeba 55cm; Kagura 150cm; Tashiro 130cm; Gala Yuzawa 100cm; Yuzawa Kogen 60cm; Yuzawa Park 40cm; Kandatsu Kogen 70cm; Iwappara 50cm; NASPA Ski Garden 50cm

So as you can see we are doing really well compared with last year... NASPA Ski Garden had just 50cm this time last year - today they have 200cm. Kandatsu was on 70cm and today on 190cm. Let's hope the season continues like this and the new year brings with it more deep snow conditions.
