Good morning.... another 10cm of snow in the village here this morning. Hardly any wind but it is still snowing lightly but forecast to perhaps clear up later on and tomorrow looks like it might be a clearer day. For now the mountains is once again mostly covered in cloud.

From Friday (30th) there will be a special early "Light Up" - you can take the Ropeway/Gondola up to the top of the mountain to see the floodlit 'juhyo' snow/ice monsters. They are still 'growing' but still a sight to behold even at this early stage. That runs through until the 3rd January. After that it is generally weekends and then every day from 21st January until 29th February. You need an extra lift ticket to use this and while it is not cheap (adults @ 2500 yen, children @ 1250 yen for return ropeway/gondola), it is an experience worth trying especially on a clear evening.

Official snow depths (28th Dec 11)
Utopia - 135cm
Chuo - 100cm
Paradise - 110cm
Uwanodai - 75cm

Operating lifts (28th Dec '11)
