It's always a good feeling (and not that common) when your predictions actually turn out to be true, but after yesterday's am report it really did start to get colder, and the rain turned to snow. At base level we're enjoying the sight of about 3 cm of snow on the ground, a very white band across the trees (that almost perfectly aligns with the lifts) and even a party clear sky.

Drivers will want to be careful in the area, though; it was mild yesterday but turned cold overnight, so it's hockey rink conditions on some of the streets this morning. If you don't have snow tires, don't bother coming (as much as we'd like to see you). If you do have snow tires, take the shallow, long approach from Toyohashi signal, rather than the straight up (and especially, straight down) from Taguchi intersection straight up to Akakura Kanko. Don't even think about going up to Seki today!

The official (planned) openings for the ski areas are:

Akakura Kanko Ski Area (Akakan): December 17
Akakura Onsen Ski Area: mid-December
Ikenotaira Ski Area: December 17
Myoko Suginohara: December 23
Madarao Kogen Ski Area: Pre-open December 10-11; full open December 16
Seki Onsen Ski Area: no official date posted for this year (December 1 last season)
Tangram Madarao: December 17

These dates are when they officially open, of course; if there's no snow, they won't be opening; if there's heavy snow, many will open earlier. We'll keep you posted!
