The rafting and canyoning companies have shut their doors, leaves on trees have migrated all over the place and now the waiting game is well and truly on.

First snow at my elevation just below the base station at Tenjin was the night of November 25, but rain yesterday made sure that the dusting was dispatched rather quickly.

From the looks of the upper pistes, snow is there on what is likely a permanent basis but not enough to ride just yet.

No other resorts in Minakami will be open for some time but Tenjin is probably not far off. News from the ropeway is last lifts will be 4pm this year as opposed to 4:30pm last season.

Over and out from Minakami until there is something of note to report!

AS THE SNOW ARRIVES...
Please note that some of our 'Now' reports may appear a little later than usual over the coming few days. As ski resorts start to open up, more information needs to be gathered and so more time is needed. Thank you for your understanding.
