Good morning.

Well, there has been some snow higher up but no snow down to town level to report (rather, it has been raining).

But, snowfall is still due sometime today with heavier snow likely overnight tonight.

While it is all still very limited, there is now a choice of Kagura or Naeba.

Kagura is opening up once again this morning, with the main course and Family course available.

Naeba will also open for the season this morning with a base course open courtesy of machine-made snow.

I am hoping to be bringing you a nice snowy report tomorrow morning.

Come on!!

- Mitsumata Ropeway
- Mitsumata Number 1 high speed lift
