What a difference a day makes...BIG SNOW! Oh, it is coming down real good in Myoko, kids. The unofficial depth measurement (walking out and back to the car) says 30cm or more at our almost-base level. And that is from 3pm or so (just before 7 now). If it keeps going, we could suddenly find ourselves with a decent base for....

The official openings tomorrow! It could happen, you never know. I'll try and get the word in from the ski areas as soon as possible—it may be time for an early-morning reconnoiter with the pooch. Maybe forget the dog and get the new skis (that just came today!) out for the first lift of the first day... Poetic joy.

The official (planned) openings for the ski areas are:

Akakura Kanko Ski Area (Akakan): December 17
Akakura Onsen Ski Area: mid-December
Ikenotaira Ski Area: December 17
Myoko Suginohara: December 23
Madarao Kogen Ski Area: Pre-open December 10-11; full open December 16
Seki Onsen Ski Area: no official date posted for this year (December 1 last season)
Tangram Madarao: December 17

These dates are when they officially open, of course; if there's no snow, they won't be opening; if there's heavy snow, many will open earlier. We'll keep you posted!
