It's the weekend once again and resort operations remain unchanged as below since the last report.

We have had some fine weather this last week with a few days getting really warm and lots of sun melting snow lower down in the village and lower slopes. It certainly feels more like spring now. There's still a lot of snow up high though and Tenjindaira still reports 330cm of snow.

This morning has been a wet one right up to the upper slopes. The rain will clear up this evening to make way for clearer conditions tomorrow when we should see bright and sunny conditions. Tuesday to Thursday is looking good for clear skies as well and temperatures really rising especially around Thursday.

Tanigawa Tenjindaira:
The resort is now open and plans to be open until 8th May.
The downhill course is now closed for the season.

Marunuma Kogen:
Part open with No5, No3 and No1 lifts operating.
The resort plans to be open until early May.

Two lifts are operating at Kawaba. Open every day until 10th April and then after that on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th April, which will be the last day of the season at Kawaba.


White World Oze Iwakura, Norn Minakami, Houdaigi, Okutone and Minakami Kogen 200 are now all closed for the season.


If you plan to visit a resort, we suggest you contact them directly to find out the latest information as openings are subject to change.
