4PM UPDATE

Naeba will open a 900m long and 30m wide course tomorrow morning, with 30cm of (artificial) snow to slide on. Hopefully by tomorrow morning there will also be some fresh snow on top of that. The Number 5 high speed lift and Number 4 romance lift will be operating.

Kagura hope to get going again tomorrow morning via Mitsumata Ropeway, but they have delayed the opening of the Tashiro area until Sunday.

Here's hoping for snowfall tonight.

(Other info in this report remains unchanged from this morning)

ORIGINAL MORNING REPORT

Good morning from Yuzawa.

It is cloudy this morning. By tonight, snow should be falling. If the forecasts are right we can expect some decent snowfall in the region over the weekend and into next week. Bring it on!

Kagura remains closed this morning - so there are no ski lifts moving today - but with snow forecast for tonight they are planning to re-open from tomorrow morning.

Tomorrow is the planned opening date for Naeba and the Tashiro area of Kagura. No firm news on either of those right now, but Naeba have their snow making machines going and are intent on keeping their date with non-natural snow. The slopes are bare on either side of the lower run they plan to open.

Iwappara and Joetsu Kokusai will 100% not be opening tomorrow and so they will go into 'stand-by' status to open just as soon as there is enough snow.

We will update this report later on this afternoon if we have new information.

Kagura operations:

CLOSED! All being well, they plan to re-open from tomorrow.
