Apologies for the delay in this report - we are still not into the groove as yet.

The weather hasn't been helping.

Since my first report there was rain that washed away lots of the snow that we had, meaning that the resort had to close.

There has been close on 15cm overnight and happily they are able to re-open this morning, but it's very limited as we wait for proper snowfall to get things going. (And unfortunately raining at lunchtime).

The Central Quad lift is operating with the central part of the Shirakaba course available.

We will update reports over the coming week, with a view to daily reports from the end of next week when hopefully things are looking better.

AS THE SNOW ARRIVES...
Please note that some of our 'Now' reports may appear a little later than usual over the coming few days. As ski resorts start to open up, more information needs to be gathered and so more time is needed. Thank you for your understanding.
