A fine day weather wise in the region yesterday, but we're back to snow this morning.

Madarao Kogen is of course opening for the season from tomorrow. Yes! And here is what is planned to be open:

- Number 1 lift
- Number 2 quad lift

Lift tickets will be available at the special price of 2000 yen for adults and 1000 yen for children (elementary school age). Those lower prices will be available until Thursday 22nd December.

The resort is currently reporting 50cm snow depth and that should be more by tomorrow with snow forecast for the day today.

Might we even get some sunshine for the opening day tomorrow? As long as we get some decent snow today, I'm good with that.

Can't wait!
