Tenjindaira announced yesterday that the season begins today with plans to just run the small middle lift. They may be able to open more shortly though as there is 15cm of snow accumulated at the base overnight and it's snowing heavily still this morning.

Not sure whether central Minakami town is getting this weather but Okutone is also opening today and a peak at their website shows they did get some of this snow. They are running about 2/3 of the mountain and also have a new lift running 800m above the previous peak so stoked to check that out at some point. Okutone is the go to mountain if weather shuts down everything in Minakami.

Currently part open
