Heavy rain actually woke me up very early this morning, it was really coming down. It is still raining at the moment low down but turning into snow on the mountains. Kagura actually have been reporting 5-10cm overnight so they seemingly escaped the rain.

Temperature is hovering just above zero here in town.

Snow clouds should be with us through until Sunday so we are hoping that they will bring us that fresh layer that we need. Thick layer please. We need more snow for resorts to be able to fully open.

I'll let you know how that turns out in my report tomorrow morning.

---

Iwappara, Ishiuchi Maruyama, Yuzawa Park and Muikamachi Ski Resort all open today. It's more "part open" than "fully open".

Tomorrow sees GALA Yuzawa open for the season - they are reporting decent amounts of snow up there - along with Muikamachi Hakkai-san in Minamiuonuma.

In fact, the only skijo not open come tomorrow in the region will be Hakkaisan-roku (23rd), Ishiuchi Hanaoka (28th) and Mt Granview (28th).

From tomorrow it's 3 days holiday with Monday being a national holiday and so it should be quite busy. With more resorts to choose from though, hopefully won't get too busy - though an early start is a good idea if possible!

Have a fun weekend.
