On Friday last week staff at the resort gathered and there was a safety-first kind of meeting-ceremony for the season as well as training going on. One of the signs that the start of the season is close-by.

Lots of fine weather at the moment though with some lovely blue skies on Friday and Saturday along with mild temperatures. The mountain is once again looking more green and brown than white as well.

Next blast of winter? Probably tomorrow and there's sign of further snow over the coming days into the weekend as well.

Less than 2 weeks now before Madarao Kogen hopes to open. We're into the serious period of needing to get that base sorted!

The official opening date for Madarao Kogen this season is Saturday 17th December.
