Good morning! It's snowing up on the top of the mountain this morning and the resort is reporting 5cm of snow overnight and another 5cm up there since earlier this morning. That sounds like 10cm of white goodness to me. A look at the webcams shows that visibility is poor - and hardly anyone out there! As you can see below, with Yamabiko and Uenotaira open, the resort is boasting 7000m of skiable runs to enjoy.

Just to recap - you need to get the Nagasaka Gondola up to the snow and then the Yamabiko quads and Uenotaira quad are servicing the skiable runs.

It would of course be great if the whole mountain could open up, but we are just going to have to wait a bit longer for that. Tomorrow looks like it should be a day of fine weather but more encouraging snow clouds are due back Thursday with Friday looking promising for a potentially decent snowfall. Going to get very cold as well according to the forecast. Fingers crossed!
