Snow! The first official, genuine, they-plowed-the-road level of snow fell overnight. It's not at skiable levels yet, but it's getting there.

It's a nice day, too, with occasional sunshine to illuminate the white, followed by more snow. Who knows; we might make the official openings.

I also noticed that Akakan has some pre-season savings on season passes. At ¥45,000 up to December 15, and ¥50,000 after that, this is really, really cheap... Japan still is a ski bargain (especially if you're earning yen).

The official (planned) openings for the ski areas are:

Akakura Kanko Ski Area (Akakan): December 17
Akakura Onsen Ski Area: mid-December
Ikenotaira Ski Area: December 17
Myoko Suginohara: December 23
Madarao Kogen Ski Area: Pre-open December 10-11; full open December 16
Seki Onsen Ski Area: no official date posted for this year (December 1 last season)
Tangram Madarao: December 17

These dates are when they officially open, of course; if there's no snow, they won't be opening; if there's heavy snow, many will open earlier. We'll keep you posted!
