Good morning.

I do have some good news... it looks like Alts Bandai should get to open up from Saturday. They have been busy 'making' snow and along with the forecasts seem confident that it can happen and I 100% hope that it can too. We don't expect to be saying these kind of things this far into January - it has definitely been an 'abnormal' season so far. Let's hope that things can change round - there is still a long way to go.

Their plan is for 6 lifts and 14 courses to open which sounds pretty impressive to me.

Let's see. Come on Nature, help us out please.

PS They are planning a 'pre-open' on Friday with one lift moving. Hey, that's tomorrow! Fingers crossed.
