It's one of those mornings where we can see a whole range of weather conditions in a short space of time. While it is snowing and cloudy with poor visibility in some areas, the sun is out in others. And that's changing quickly. Right now here in Maruike it is quite bright with the sun peeping out from behind clouds but I was over in Okushiga a little earlier on and there was poor visibility and snow falling. So it doesn't quite seem to be able to make up it's mind right now.

The snow was coming down pretty good later on in the day yesterday after that fine start, and I would saw we had another 10-15cm of fresh snow fall so the courses got a top-up.

I have a feeling it will clear up today and tomorrow the sun should make an appearance as well. Look for the next decent snowfall to be perhaps the evening of the 1st.

Resort areas are seeing more people out there now as New Year guests stake their claim on the slopes. Lines seem fast moving though and I can't see anything that looks like congestion out there at all just yet. Hopefully it might stay that way.

Nighta operations this evening planned at the following resort area:

- Takamagahara Mammoth
- Ichinose Family
- Ichinose Diamond
- Yakebitaiyama
- Kumanoyu
