Kagura early season

Question

What's the earliest in a season you have been to Kagura?  If indeed you have been to Kagura early season.

Im hoping to go before the middle of December.

I saw on the news the other night that the next 3 months is forecast to be 暖冬 warm winter which is annoying to hear.......

I think the earliest that I went was mid November.

Unless my memory is playing tricks with me, I'm pretty sure they used to open earlier than 23rd Nov which seems to always be the target date now.

3 month forecasts on TV are not very reliable, especially for the skiing community. 暖冬 (warm winter) forecasts are for the general, non-skiing, population and hardly refer to elevations of 1,800m (Kagura). Today, Nov3rd, is a national holiday in Japan and in the past the evening news closed with images of skiers making their first turns of the season in Hokkaido. Fingers crossed!
