I was really torn yesterday about putting up a report or not yesterday; we got (officially, via my really pro-model ruler) 13cm of snow at base, but the snowfall rate was so low that I really doubted that we'd be getting close to a base that would allow for the areas to open.

And after a night of strong winds, it's just barely snowing at the moment.

It looks a bit doubtful for the early-season opening the areas hoped for tomorrow; a quick phone call to all the areas tells us that... they're not going to say just yet. They promise to post by afternoon, in Japanese at least (I received some polite giggles from both of the Akakura resorts when I asked, "Will you be posting in English?"). Good luck, and try Google Translate.

I'll try and post again if there are any positive developments.

Meanwhile, it's supposed to snow a lot, but let's just see. It will come, and you will be out in the white stuff before you know it (in the meantime, put on a video; put on your boots and let them start reforming to your feet; put on your skis and full gear in the house and annoy your kids).
