Good news this morning.

It is snowing heavily as of 8am with 20cm of fresh snow to report on the ground.

Wind was blowing strongly last night but it is getting gentler now - the lifts should be starting to move from 8:30, on time.

No changes of open courses today but hopefully some will open tomorrow with the new snowfall that we have got... snow should continue falling on and off through tomorrow.

Light powder snow too, really nice.

All roads from Koriyama through Urabandai are covered with snow and the snowplow trucks are working everywhere Be careful when you drive.
