The snow is falling today; looking a lot better, although the total on the ground is still only about 20cm (which is also the official word from Akakura Kanko).

I see a lot of cars passing by the house loaded with skis; I thought maybe one of the areas decided to let people chew up the grass, but I think it's more likely that those drivers weren't checking SnowJapan diligently enough....

Just playing the waiting game now; all the areas would have liked to open by tomorrow, but they'll need a lot more base before they can get out the groomers and pack things down a bit.

Regardless of your views on groomed vs. natural snow, they really do need to do that—there's a lot of interesting stuff out there on the hill that needs to be well covered.
