It's a bright morning to start things off today with the temperature hovering at around +5 degrees at the moment - so quite mild. We have rain forecast for today on and off but for the moment it is holding off.

Kagura are once again reporting snow falling up high on the main gelende, though right now it is hard to imagine it being anything other than light snow. It will be blown about though as already we have some fairly gusty winds down at town level and strong winds are forecast for the rest of the day.

Things are looking very promising for the coming week. We have snow lined up for tomorrow and then for every day in the next week, so fingers crossed this turns into decent snowfall in the region.


PM update:

A bit of an update.... some strong winds blowing things around this morning and it still not raining here.

Tomorrow, both Gala Yuzawa and Kandatsu were planning to open.

It is looking like Gala Yuzawa will be able to open as planned from tomorrow. They currently are reporting 50cm of snow and are hoping for some more snowfall tonight, but even if it doesn't, they look all set to open.

Yesterday Kandatsu was reporting 0-10cm on lower slopes and up to 60cm higher up, but that is not enough to open with and while they will not able to open tomorrow as planned, they will be on stand-by to open as soon as they can after the 15th.

More news on resort openings coming tomorrow...
