A very snowy morning to you from Madarao.

8cm from yesterday that I hadn't reported yet and another 41cm this morning. So 49cm is going on the report this morning.

The snow should ease off this afternoon and we should be enjoying clearer skies tomorrow. Then snow is due back over the weekend.

Things are feeling really (really) good for the beginning of the season. Just two more days to go before the lifts start moving at both Madarao Kogen and connected Tangram Ski Circus - and the resort has announced that opening will go ahead as planned on Saturday.

And here are the details:

8:30am until 5:00pm

Lifts:
Number 1 lift
Number 2 quad lift

Courses
Paradise
Beginners B
Utopia
Giant (lower)
Curving
Pole A

Lower lift ticket prices for opening until 22nd December.

Yey!

Official opening dates:

Madarao Kogen:
Saturday 16th December 2017

More updates over the coming weeks with snow news. Once the ski lifts start operating, this report will be updated daily.
