Good morning from Madarao.

What a lovely morning it is. As you can see from the images below.

Still, we could do with some wintery storms bringing us huge amounts of fresh snowfall. We might get some tonight but it won't be a huge storm. And then there's the warm bump we are expecting into the weekend. After that... Santa? Onegai shimasu!

For now though I take the view that I won't wish my days away and will just enjoy what we got. So that's what I am going to do. It is a fine day to be here and outside.

The resort has announced that more will be open from this Saturday. And here is their cunning plan:

Number 1 lift
Number 2 quad lift
Super quad lift
Number 11 lift
Number 12 lift
Number 15 lift
Crystal course connecting moving walkway

And they plan to have much more terrain available too, though the tree run areas will not be open -- more snow needed for those.

The Mountain Pass (joint with connecting Tangram Ski Circus) will also be available from Saturday and all of the lifts at Tangram should also be spinning from Saturday.
