It's a lovely morning. The sun is out, a bit of a southerly wind blowing the flags around outside my building here.

A fine day to be on the slopes, with fresh snow due to be delivered overnight tonight and through tomorrow.

Without getting in my car and going round to check with my own eyes, I am relying on official information here. Sadly, it's inadequate and actually contradictory at times; I am constantly amazed at how difficult it seems to be to bring clear and collected information to folk about what is open. To me it seems like that should be the most important thing.

Anyway, sorry...

From what I can gather, this morning Shibutoge, part of Sun Valley and Maruike, part of Ichinose Diamond and Tanno join the fun -- with expanded parts of Okushiga Kogen. Yakebitaiyama is mostly open now.

So things are expanding, even though there's no new snowfall to report to you. We could do with more to really get things going because it's still not what you could call 'deep'.

Have a good Saturday.
