Ho ho ho! Oh, we've already done Christmas haven't we... time for New Year! The slopes are starting to get busy here this morning on this New Years Eve last-day-of-the-year type day. After all, it should be one of the busiest weekends of the year, so if places aren't busy today and tomorrow then there's a problem. Right now as I write this things don't seem too bad. Happily the whole Mt Naeba today is unaffected by winds and so everywhere is open and operating so a big wide area to spread people about. There may well be bottlenecks though (Naeba gondolas and middle area of resort), so keep that in mind. Taking an early or late lunch is definitely advised on days like today as oftentimes the slopes are less busy during the 'official lunchhour' times. ;)

It's New Years Eve of course and so there are some events going on today. After night skiing tonight at 9am there'll be the traditional skiing-down-the-slopes-with-lighted-torches thing going on followed by some hopefully spectacular fireworks.

I almost forgot to mention the weather. It's a mix of light snow and just cloudy conditions this morning and likely to stay the same. We should see the sun tomorrow though before more snow moving in tomorrow night.

Another New Years tip for tomorrow. If you can haul yourself out of bed early, getting out there for first lifts is a good idea. While it will be busy during the day, there might be a few people nursing hangovers and making a late start....

Whethere you are here in Naeba or reading this from the other side of the world, whatever you are doing, I hope you have a good one. Stay safe and have fun.

See you next year, ie. tomorrow morning!
