A dusting of snow yesterday afternoon in Minakami, though it stayed clear for most of the day with ominous grey clouds overhead. Very cold at the moment with low temperatures, especially up high and there has been a strongish wind the last few days. Good conditions on all runs that are open. Okutone joins the party today with a base of 35cms and winter is really hitting its stride with everyone expecting the busy times to start from this weekend.

The forecast is for good weather today with a week of on-and-off snow starting from Saturday.

Snowing now in Minakami!Later, rain is expected in the morning at the valley level but snow should continue above 1200m. Tomorrow will be snowing early morning, with large dumps forecast from monday to wednesday. A very white christmas! From today all Minakami slopes are officially open, finally the winter season is here...
