Good morning and apologies for the missed report yesterday.

It was fine yesterday but today it is raining lightly early on - hopefully that will stop soon - as we wait patiently for our snowy goodness to arrive. As you might imagine, the rain is not doing any favours with the little snow that we do have around. We really are in need of a proper bout of snow... and it looks like most regions of Japan are in the same boat in that respect at the moment.

There is some intermittent snowfall on the forecast around the weekend. Will Santa be the hero early next week?

Minowa and Nekoma are still open though less available today... details as I have them below.
