Well, not exactly the thick layer we were hoping for this morning.

About 5cm or so at base areas and up to 10cm that Kagura is reporting higher up.

This morning cloud over Yuzawa again, and it is snowing lightly at the moment. Having said that, over at Naeba blue skies seem to be appearing as clouds move on... perhaps we will get some of that later here as well. So mixed conditions today.

Today is Naeba's 'Grand Open' which probably involves some local sake, snacks - and more importantly, most of the lifts and runs being open.

Across town most of the resorts are now open, and trying to be as fully open as possible. Today is the first of three days holiday in Japan and one of those important weekends for the skijo - they want to make a good start to the season proper this weekend. There are some limitations though due to the lack of deep snow so far so in places it's a bit thin out there. Generally as you might expect there's more snow the higher you go.

All of the 3 main areas of the GALA Yuzawa resort are open from today, including most of the courses, as is the connection between Yuzawa Kogen - GALA Yuzawa - Ishiuchi Maruyama.

The Iwappara resort seem to be fully open.

We are being led to believe that hoping for some snowfall today and tomorrow is not a waste of time, so I am hoping to be able to bring snowy news in my next report.

From Monday, we'll be listing up all of the main resorts and their respective official snow depth information.
