Winter is most certainly here now. I'll start off with some numbers... here's how much fresh snow resorts around town are reporting has fallen since yesterday:

Iwappara - 50-70cm
Kagura - 60cm
Mitsumata - 50cm
Tashiro - 40cm

I would say that I had to move about 30cm off the car this morning. Different numbers, but there're all big. The very good news is that the snow is continuing to fall and looks set to continue all through today and possibly tomorrow as well, though it does seem that the peak might have been last night/this morning.

Lots of resorts are opening up today, and here's the latest we could fine:

Kagura - pretty much fully open (including Mitsumata and Tashiro)
Naeba - both gondolas, 2 quads, 2 pairs operating
GALA Yuzawa - central area open, north area open soon
Kandatsu Kogen - part open
Yuzawa Kogen - Kogen area open (not Nunoba)
Kayama Captain Coast - open (lifts are free!)
Iwappara - open from this afternoon (lifts are free!)
Yuzawa Park - part open
Ludens Yuzawa - 2 lifts operating
Ishiuchi Maruyama - part open
Centleisure Maiko - part open
Joetsu Kokusai - part open

NASPA Ski Garden and Yuzawa Nakazato are currently planning to open up tomorrow.

As you can see, a lot can change in just 1 day!

It's a cold morning as you might expect and the snow is coming down, so come prepared.
