So yesterday we had those very strong winds. At times they calmed down while at other times it was very wild out there, and the same overnight. This morning there is still some strong winds making noises outside and blowing things about, though not as much as yesterday.

But still, Gala Yuzawa is closed today, as is the Tashiro and main parts of Kagura (just the Mitsumata bit open this morning). Naeba is also limited to three lifts at the base of the resort.

Iwappara seems to be fully open today though, with Kandatsu, NASPA and Nunoma all partly open.

So once again limited operations today and even they may be affected by weather conditions - like I said it is still very windy this morning.

Yesterday as well as the wind later on in the day we also had some very heavy rain falling. Yikes, that was not good and won't have done the snow conditions any favours for today.

But! There's good news too. The good news to report is that light snow is currently falling and it is much colder than yesterday. Indeed, overnight Kagura have got 5cm of fresh snow up there. Hopefully we will see more snow today and in the coming days as well. It doesn't look like it will be anything significant, but we have been pleasantly surprised before so perhaps this week too.
