Opening dates for the 2014 -15 season approach!

Its time to wax up your sticks and dust of your ski gear.

It has been a warm November but finally the temps look set to drop from next week with snow on the forecast to the valley level from Dec 5th. The December forecast from the JMA predicts a reasonable probability of higher than average temps with lower than average snow, so maybe not a great start to the season but over the main cold season (December to February) they predict a normal snowfall season.

There have been no major changes for Minakami resorts for this season, with the exception of Houdaigi changing to digital passes and Okutone making a new bottom reception building. The resorts final open dates will be snow dependent but currently they are planning to open on the following dates:

Tenjindaira - December 6th
Houdaigi - December 13th
Norn Minakami - December 18th
White Valley- December 19th
Minakami Kogen - December 20th
Okutone - December 20th
