Good news this morning!

I have 12cm to report from here at Minowa base and I note that Nekoma are this morning reporting 17cm of fresh snowfall (and their official snow depth has hit 100cm at last!)

That's something a bit more like and will have breathed some new lift into proceedings.

We can also hope for more cm to report tomorrow morning with decent snowfall possible tonight. :)

There is also good news from Inawashiro (and I apologise for not catching this). At last, they are able to part open the upper part of their Chuo area - they have 2 lifts operating and 4 courses open as noted below.

As I mentioned in the report yesterday, Alts Bandai is closed from today. They will re-open as soon as there is enough snow.
