After the fresh snow of yesterday a few more resorts are opening up small parts of their slopes. Snow is still thin on the ground with 20-30cm on the slopes that are open, but at least there is graudally more getting open. Yokoteyama have 2500m of skiable area open, so for a first ski of the season that isn't too bad (that is all natural snow as well as they don't have snow-making machines there).

The resort areas open today are:

Takamagahara:
Number 2 triple lift

Yakebitaiyama:
Number 4 pair lift (South courses open, 15-25m wide area)

Kumanoyu:
Number 2 pair lift (1300m course)

Yokoteyama:
Number 1 and 2 lifts (number 1 and 2 courses, 2500m)

The Shiga Kogen Ropeway is also operating this weekend.

We might see some snowfall tonight and tomorrow, so lets hope for as many cm as possible!
