Missed a report yesterday because I was stuck digging snow all day! The snow continued throughout yesterday, lightening in the afternoon and its stopped snowing around 18:00. The total snowfall from the storm was around 70cm at the valley level with over 100cm in the upper mountains.

Today temperatures have risen to around 4 deg C at the valley allowing the snow to settle. The forecast is showing some light snow from Wednesday evening through to Saturday.

The current forecast means that most Minakami resorts will be open by this Saturday with nearly all of the lifts expected to be in operation. Coverage on lower lying resorts (Norn & Okutone) may be limited but upper resorts should have a good base.

---

Tenjindaira - all lifts open, return course closed
Houdaigi - 1 lift open

Planned opening dates

Norn - Dec 19
Okutone - Dec 20
Minakami Kogen - Dec 20
