Good news snow fans!

The resort is reporting 15-20cm of fresh snowfall on the ground this morning since yesterday, and indeed there was the best part of 15cm on my car this morning. It felt good to have to be wiping it all off, if not feeling like a waste of lovely snow.

More snow due tonight - and more again Friday through the weekend - so hopefully this is our base for the season being made before our eyes. One that will stick around until spring.

Just 10 days to go before Madarao Kogen plans to open for the season.

---

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