The sky looks loaded this morning: ready to go, just waiting for that trigger to be pulled. Like, I think it’s going to snow and it could be a lot. Sunny to the east and south, dark clouds over the mountains.

Lots of resorts opening up today, so I wanted to get a report out early (and a busy day ahead for your writer), but no resort has fresh news up as of 7am (not just the town’s accumulator site, which has been a bit rusty lately). Which is not good. I guess there still isn’t the idea that skiers might choose one resort over another based on conditions; it’s more like the old days when people arrived here with a plan firmly in mind and only one or two days to carry it out. Sorry, bit of a rant, but even our new returnee, Lotte Arai, which did put up a snow report at 6:23am, and noted that three runs will open, didn’t say which lifts will run... oh, well. PR is not the greatest strength of Japanese companies.

And I ramble again, because the most important thing is that we have a great base for this time of the year, looks like days of fresh ahead, beautiful mountains…. Just a gentle prod for the fine resorts here to be a bit more proactive info-wise. Ya got the skiing down pretty good!

All snow reports the same as yesterday, except Lotte Arai.
