A slight sprinkling of snow overnight and this morning the clouds seem to be clearing up to make way for a fine day. As this is being written the sun is out from behind some clouds and it looks like it may clear up more. It's a cold morning, with temps down to around -4 outside. It's also looking like we might get some snowfall tonight and into tomorrow.

Below is the current status of the resorts, with the numbers of lifts moving at each part of the resort in brackets.

Sun Valley (2)
Maruike (1)
Giant (1)
Shiga Kogen Ropeway (1)
Bundadaira (2)
Mammoth (3)
Higashidateyama (1)
Nishidateyama (2)
Ichinose Family (2)
Ichinose Diamond (2)
Yakebitaiyama (6)
Okushiga Kogen (ALL)
Kumanoyu (4)
Yokoteyama (6)

The resorts are doing what they can to open up as much area as possible - especially as we are now into a holiday weekend and Christmas is just a few days away - and a few more lifts have started operating. The next few days and the run up to the New Year will more than likely be very busy - everyone is praying for snow to fall to let things really get going.

There will also be 'nighta' operations at Kumanoyu is started from today.
