Good morning!

Firstly, apologies for the later-than-planned start to reports. Please bear with me as all the pieces fall into place in the coming week or two.

Anyway... I bring good news!

After being on the receiving end of an impressive thick layer of snow, almost 50cm (recorded in this report), APPI will be opening from tomorrow.

They are actually calling it a special 'pre-open', with the official opening planned for 30th November).

With warmer conditions forecast for the weekend it is unclear what happens next, but anyway here's the info for tomorrow:

Saturday 23rd November

- 9:00am until 3:00pm
- Number 1 pair lift operating
- Shirakaba course open
- A 1 day lift ticket is 1,000 yen (free for pre-school little people)

Sunshine is expected tomorrow and a relatively mild/warm weekend so hopefully it will be a feel-good taste of that first run of the season.

It looks like they plan to take it one day at a time in this extremely early period.
