The big news of the morning - it isn't snowing! It was 30 minutes or so ago, but for now the snow has stopped and it is actually quite bright and we can actually see the mountains for a change... and right now the sun is actually shining.

It won't last for long though apparently, with snow forecast to move in later in the day and for some fairly heavy snow to be falling once more tomorrow.

The slopes are looking very inviting today though, so a good chance to get out there - just keep in mind to be extra careful where you go as there is a lot of fresh snow out there.

Only the central part of Gala Yuzawa is open today. Kagura seems to be open and parts of Naeba are still closed.

In other snow news, it seems that Yuzawa town have already used up over half of their "snow moving" budget for the season - the total budget being about 100,000,000 yen. It has also been reported that in Niigata prefecture there have been 9 deaths, 31 serious injuries and 61 slight injuries due to people moving the snow and/or avalanches - this time last year there had only been 15 incidents in total. So the huge snowfall is having a big effect on life in Snow Country.

Some new pictures have been added to the gallery.
