The snow might have tapered off during the day yesterday, but it started up again sometime during the night. The boot test shows about 35-40cm this morning, and it's falling at a rate of 1-2 cm/hour. Which means, real snow.

And it is real snow, too, nit the heavy glop that usually falls early season. The shoveling isn't a pain, it's hard to make a great snowball. The kids may not be happy about that, but for snow control and skiing, that sounds a lot better!

I doubt that the ski areas would open early unless there is a lot more snow, but if there are any changes we'll let you know!

Official planned opening dates:

Akakura Onsen and Akakura Kanko: December 20
Ikenotaira: December 19
Suginohara: December 20
Seki Onsen: As soon as there's enough snow
