There was some snow last night but unfortunately could not record one cm...

Snow only up in the higher elevation like here at Grandeco, rain in the Urabandai Goshikinuma area.

According to the forecast, temperatures should keep cold until 28th and we might get some snow tomorrow and the day after. Let's see!

Ski resorts around Mt. Bandai are announcing their planned closing dates:

Alts Bandai / Urabandai ski resorts - until 27th March.

After 27th, resorts that remain open in the region will be Grandeco, Nekoma and Minowa.

Nekoma will be closed between 19th-21th and 26th-28 Apr but these resorts all plan to be open until 5th May ---- but whether they can do that or not will totally depend on the snow levels of course, which are less than usual and less than expected. We'll just have to see how things develop over the coming weeks.

The following resorts are now closed:

Listel Ski Fantasia
Numajiri
Inawashiro resort
Inawashiro
Minero
