Morning from Madarao on this New Years Eve.

12cm of snow to report since yesterday and right now it is cloudy. The snow clouds are taking a rest... for the moment. I can even see a bit of sun trying to peek through - might it clear up. A good chance of that happening during the day tomorrow, but we'll be receiving another top-up of fresh snow around mid-week. Now that we have this decent base, regular snowfall with some sun in between sounds perfect to me.

Nighta until midnight tonight and then fireworks to bring in 2019. It should be a good - and long - day.

Check out the icicles on the photo below - I bet you don't have any of them down there today, Australian friends ;)

Have yourself a fun and safe Last Day of 2018.

A message from SnowJapan

If you didn’t already know, we are currently running a special ski lift ticket prize draw on SnowJapan. Full details can be found here, so please do go and take a look.

We have already received many entries for the prize draw. Good luck to everyone who has entered.

Lots of you have very kindly taken the chance to send us comments and thoughts about our website. We don’t often get to hear this kind of feedback, so it really is fantastic to read so many supportive comments and good ideas. We really do appreciate it. Thank you.

One thing that comes across is how much our website means to so many people out there. We can of course always see the large website traffic statistics, but in the end, they are just numbers. Comments and words of encouragement from real people make it all that much more... real. At times the volume of things that need to be done can get to feel somewhat overwhelming, so it is nice to hear the support.

Hopefully, one thing that comes across to people who know our site is the love, care and enthusiasm that we put into it. We are going to keep on (stubbornly!) doing what we are doing, always trying to improve and move forward.

Many of you have asked how you can help support us. The easiest way to help is to simply spread the word about the site - just let other people know about SnowJapan.com. Whether it’s a post on social media, a link on your website, in conversation or whatever. And please don’t forget to mention SnowJapan if you contact any of the accommodations or other businesses that you find on our site. It all goes towards helping us.

Thank you again. And Happy New Year!

May 2019 be particularly snowy one.
