Good morning folks.

Good news too.

After some rain it turned into snow and this morning I have 14cm of fresh snow to report and add to my reports and the resort reporting at least 25cm of snow depth.

The snow clouds have retreated for now but they should be back tonight so things are looking pretty good for that opening on Saturday.

Here are the plans:

- Open from Saturday 15th December
- The Number 1 lift will be operating
- 8:30am until 4:00pm
- Paradise and Beginner B courses will be available
- 1 day ticket: 1,000 yen for adults and 500 yen for children
- Not much snow (as yet), so no grooming

Snow is due before the weekend so let's hope they can open as planned (or perhaps even more than currently planned).

I will of course let you know.

Madarao and Tangram both plan to open on Saturday 15th December.
