Apologies for the delayed update to the report; we hope to get into daily mode soon.

Anyway, no news of deep heavy snowfall just yet but there is news to share. And here it is:

Okutone Snow Park is now part open with the Number 1 pair lift, Number 2 pair lift and Number 3 pair lifts operating - the first two used to get to the open Mukouyama course area.

Norn Minakami is also part open with the Number 2 lift operating and lower part of the E course open.

Houdaigi plans to open from tomorrow (Saturday) and they plan to get the Number 6 pair lift operating.

It's all limited yet given the general lack of snow, but the resorts are trying as best they can to open with what they have.
