Fine weather after some fresh snow again this morning. More fine weather forecast for the weekend.

The current situation to the east continues to heavily disrupt things in the Minakami and Katashina region. Just a few places open but more planning to be open for the three day weekend that we have in front of us (Monday is a national holiday in Japan).

Here's a round up of what we are seeing in the area

Marunuma Kogen - part open and plan to be open until early March (apart from 23rd/24th March);
Okutone - plan to be open (2 lifts) until 27th March;
Norn Minakami - opening from Saturday 19th, one quad lift
White World Oze Iwakura - part open from 19th - 21st March, will decide on after that nearer the time
Tanigawa Tenjindaira - closed until at least Friday 25th March
Kawaba - closed until at least 25th March;
Houdaigi - closed until 25th March;
Minakami Kogen 200 - unconfirmed.

As many of you may know, gasoline supply is limited in many nearby regions. Whether people will be able to, or wanting to, visit this weekend is yet to be seen. Whatever you choose, stay safe and have as best a weekend as you can.

Next update coming in a few days.
