Good morning!

And apologies for the delay in the reports starting this year. There have been a few changes behind the scenes, so let me explain...

Last season the snowfall data on this Aizu Bandai Now report was brought to you from the base of the Grandeco resort in the Ura Bandai area.

This season, readings will be coming from a different place - from the base of the Minowa resort.

The Minowa ski resort is located to the ESE of Grandeco and is on the western slopes of Mt Adatara in Inawashiro town. It is about 30km from Grandeco by car, but probably a third of that if you draw a straight line

It will be interesting to see how that affects the numbers. Of course, the Aizu region covers a very wide area and snowfall is going to vary. While the actual observed snowfall data in this report will be coming to you from the base of Minowa, we will try to add more information from other areas just like last year. And it goes without saying that there will be no exaggerating, and we will just bring you what we see. (Also, it is probably not a good idea to strictly compare numbers - indeed, with the various Now reports too).

Minowa itself was hoping to open at the end of last week on 22nd November. There was a light snowfall last week (recorded in this report) but as with many regions of Japan it got rather warm over the weekend and we are now just sat tight waiting for snow.

The forecast doesn't look set to bring us much in the next run of days - perhaps some on Friday night - so we need to wait a little longer.

I will soon be back to bring you information on the planned opening dates of the other main ski resorts in the region. And of course with any snow news.

Gambarimasu!
