It has been a cloudy start to the day in Yuzawa with some rain falling earlier on but holding off as I write this report. It's a mild 5C at the moment and rain is forecast today still and so there is a good chance of that happening... indeed it is actually raining now in Minamiuonuma.

It seems that we now have all ski resorts in Yuzawa at least part open, with just a few yet to open to the north in Minamiuonuma.

As I mentioned last night resorts are trying to open up as much as possible. Kagura has been near-fully open for a while now, and from today most of Naeba will be open. Iwappara are running all their lifts this morning and all courses on their slopes open.

Gala Yuzawa also opens today with all of the Central Area and part of both the North and South Areas open - all lifts are moving apart from the one pair lift in the North Area.

Most of the skiers-only NASPA Ski Garden, which also opens for the first time today, is also open from the go.

All in all, we're doing pretty good I'd say. It is always a relief for the ski resorts to be able to open before Christmas and with so much open as well... there have been years when it has been much more limited at this time of year.

Everything is set.

So let's bring on the crazy snowfall!
