Curse climate change! One degree colder, and we would have serious snow here this morning. I can call it wet snow at the moment, although the precipitation today has moved between steady rain and rain that occasionally goes to white (I hardly noticed except when I saw ice crystals on the brown dog's back on the morning walk). Well, that's at the base level, so there's every chance the the slopes and peaks are starting to get the beginning of the base for the new season.

The fog layer is now moving steadily down; hopefully that means colder air as well.

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!
