I wasn't going to send out a report today, once I woke up and saw perfect blue skies, felt that warm sun on my face, and noticed that there was no additional snow on top of the 20cm or so out there. But, much to my surprise, three resorts have decided to open up on a VERY limited basis and let people get out there and scrape the snow off the grass! Not great skiing, perhaps, but a nice day to pose in your gear, bask in the sun and enjoy some nice views.

Akakura Onsen is opening up the Yodel section, with one lift running. You have to take a shuttle bus up from the base area, of course (and just to let you know how little snow there is, that shuttle bus heads up on a road that should be covered with snow and under the ski runs).

For the families, Kyukamura opens today, then closes until more snow falls.

And Madarao has opened one run and one lift, and isn;t saying if it will stay open (looks like it will).

As I have written here in the past, snow conditions can be dodgy until Christmas or so. And, sure enough, the first heavy snow forecast is for Christmas Day.....
