A snowy morning greets me for New Year’s Eve with another 11cm to be reported for the 24 hour period. Most came overnight, light and dry, making this morning’s riding conditions particularly good. That’s well over 3 metres of snowfall this December, a great end to the horror show that has been 2020 and an exciting beginning to 2021.

Be sure to layer up out there today and schedule regular breaks as the temperatures are especially cold. Almost no wind to report. The resort will operate night skiing tonight on the Family and Center Express chairs. Lucky draws, giveaways, New Year’s Soba tasting and a fireworks show highlight the celebrations here tonight.

Nagamine 2 opens tomorrow.
