Happy New Year. And a good start it is too with some decent snowfall to report this morning. There is about 20-30cm of fresh snow on the car tops this morning, a welcome site on any day - even with a hangover - and the snow is continuing to pile up on the side of the road. It's a cold morning, with temperatures as low as -10 being recorded earlier on.

With all the fresh snow on the ground and the courses, if you make it out onto the slopes the conditions are excellent... lots of fresh tracks to be made in untouched snow. Sounds like fun to me.

Pretty much all of Shiga Kogen is now open. The only course that seems to be not open yet is the fairly short Expert Course at Yakebitaiyama, but other than that - all open.

The snow looks set to continue throughout today and also tomorrow and maybe even beyond, so it's a very snowy new year here. Get wrapped up well and ready for all the powder if you plan to be in the area.

Nighta areas open tonight:

- Sun Valley
- Maruike
- Mammoth
- Ichinose Family
- Ichinose Diamond
- Yakebitaiyama
- Kumanoyu
