Good morning.

Snow last night - fairly heavily at times - but unfortunately it has changed into rain this morning. 12 cm of new snow to report, and kind of heavy.

The first and second photos this morning are from Grandeco and the third one is from Nekoma last night when the snow was falling.

Minowa and Grandeco are the two ski hills that are currently part open in the region with Nekoma next up - they have announced that they will open from Saturday the 15th. Others are waiting and hope to make it from 22nd December.

The snow forecast for tomorrow seems to have changed a bit with the next snowfall due Friday.

The roads from Inawashiro through Urabandai is are very slippery at the moment; snow tires are necessary.

Planned opening dates (subject to change):

Already part open:

- Minowa
- Grandeco

Saturday 15th December:

- Nekoma

Saturday 22nd December:

- Urabandai
- Alts Bandai
- Inawashiro
- Inawashiro Resort
- Listel
