Dec 31 2010

Weather conditions: Overcast
New snowfall: 20cm (upper)
Snow depth: Hakuba Goryu Top : 210cm
Not much to say today except that as usual the Christmas – New Years period has brought great snowfall and crowds are out in force on all resorts. No snow overnight to speak of but new snowfall includes all of yesterdays slow flutter.

The sun broke through today with blue skies on the East but thick cloud high up obscuring the alps. No snow falling, white skies above but the forecast still read for snow tonight to what extent we are waiting to see!

As usual several resorts are doing something special for New Years with Happo-one celebrations at Nakiyama from 11PM, Hakuba Goryu with events starting at 3PM & Hakuba Iwatake celebrations beginning at 10:30PM all with fireworks at the countdown. Cortina also has a New Years event great for those staying at the Hotel there.

Happy New Year and cheers to a snowy start to 2011!
