There is about 15-20cm or so of fresh snow on the car this morning and the Naeba resort is reporting about 30cm (but hearing of more on the floor from first hand reports).

So very good to hear that news this morning! Last night the rain turned into snow in the evening and started to stick and as forecast there are some fairly strong winds this morning, though perhaps not as strong as we were expecting. It is currently -2 degrees in Yuzawa and the snow is still falling, though not too heavy right now.

As far as I can see right now, the wind is having the following effect on resorts:

Naeba - gondolas closed, other lifts open;
Kagura - just 2 lifts at Mitsumata open right now;
Yuzawa Kogen - closed;
Iwappara - some lifts may be slowed or stopped depending on the winds;
GALA Yuzawa - planning to open 10am

Other lifts may be affected but winds will probably calm down as the day progresses.

It's quite bright though and even just before looked like it was going to clear up, but then the snow started again. The snow clouds are however forecast to clear up by this evening and it is looking like tomorrow will be one of those fine, sunny days with temperatures warming up once again.

The snow depths have added a fair few cm in the last week which is good news. I'm not quite sure why the official Kagura numbers seem unmoveable on 230cm, but new snow there has been! Right now, conditions out there today should be very good.

Nighta tonight is at the following resorts in Yuzawa:
Naeba
Yuzawa Nakazato
Iwappara

In Minamiuonuma just to the north, nighta at:
Ishiuchi Maruyama
Centleisure Maiko
Joetsu Kokusai
