Naeba Open! Yes, the resort has managed to open for the season with the usual courses in front of the season. Number 4 and 5 courses are open and serviced by the Number 4 romance (pair) lift and the Number 5 quad lift.

A small ceremony was held at the base at 8am with the usual television and press attending before those course opened at 8:30am. The resort are reporting "50cm", but remember that is all artificial snow.

Just a dusting of snow higher up at Kagura overnight and still only the Number 1 pair lift open at Kagura so things are still very limited.

It looks like we might be able to expect some snow later today and perhaps tomorrow - we'll keep you posted.


Late update:

OK well that was the first day of Naeba - about 900m of course and a fair few people turning up to enjoy themselves. It has actually been a very windy day and quite chilly out there too, it's just a pity that the snow couldn't make an appearance down below. You had to look up to see the snow and there's currently a sprinkling down to around half way down the mountain.
