Just a quick update this morning as things continue to get more winter-like here in Madarao.

There's some lovely atmospheric scenery this morning with some dusting on the trees on the upper part of the mountain.

Snow possible tonight too and on Sunday as well.

We're now one month away from the planned opening of Madarao Kogen. Still a while to go yet and it seems too far away, but as we wait in the meantime it is always exciting to see the approach of winter.

I'll post again early next week hopefully with some news of snowfall.

---

Official opening dates:

Madarao Kogen:
Saturday 16th December 2017

Tangram Ski Circus:
Saturday 16th December 2017

So we have over a month left before the ski lifts start moving. Some ski hills usually try to open as quickly as possible and often miss their opening dates. These two seem to plan for a (perhaps) more realistic opening date and usually hit it. Hopefully by the time they open, there'll be decent snow cover and things can get off to a great start.

More updates over the coming weeks with snow news. Once the ski lifts start operating, this report will be updated daily.
