Very mixed weather yesterday in the area. After that beautiful start, clouds moved in and by late afternoon it was sleet falling (rain to the north) but then soon back to snow in Yuzawa. We ended up getting perhaps another 10-15cm lower down with high up at Kagura reporting another haul of 20-30cm of fresh snow.

It is a cold feeling -2 degrees this morning and snow is still falling and likely to continue overnight but right now it looks like tomorrow conditions should clear up.

We also have some stronger winds higher up which is affecting the Kagura and Naeba resorts. It's limited at both Mitsumata, Kagura and Naeba this morning. At Naeba most of the courses are open but all of the Gondolas are closed. Things may well change if conditions allow them.

From today we will probably see many more people hitting the slopes as the New Year weekend starts for a lot of people. The resorts will be hoping for one of the busiest of the season, so you can expect crowds and queues for lifts at the most popular places.

Looks like we should expect snow overnight and into tomorrow though things may well clear up and Sunday looks like temperatures should get milder. Next snow due Sunday night.
