First of all, Happy New Year! May it be a snowy one and we wish all our friends and readers of this report, the other reports and the site in general, all the very best for 2011.

We want it to be a snowy one of course. The season has of course got off to a slow start here in Yuzawa and while we were hoping for some decent snowfall last night, we got perhaps just 3-5cm or so. Higher up at Kagura as well they are reporting 5cm this morning.

Right now it is snowing lightly and it is cloudy though fairly bright. The temperature is around 1 degree. Snow is forecast for the rest of the day and into tomorrow followed by some finer weather and then snow on Thursday. As the forecast stands now, it's looking good for Thursday. Let's hope it pans out.

Resorts are trying to open up more slopes for this important New Year weekend.

Some noteable changes early on today - Gala Yuzawa is going to open part of the South Area for the first time in a number of years today. It should be fun to try that area out again. That means that the "3 mountains" - Yuzawa Kogen > Gala Yuzawa > Ishiuchi Maruyama connection is now open.

The Ishiuchi Maruyama is now also 'fully open' according to the resort and as of last night they started their 'nighta' operations.

Iwappara is also reporting as of yesterday that the full area of the resort is open.

Snow is still fairly thin on the ground of course so cover isn't at peak season levels yet, so do keep that in mind.
