Well, so far our storm hasn't arrived. I was thinking I would wait a bit for the massive flakes to start falling and the winds to blow me over, but fall they have not done just yet. Just light snow started not long ago up top.

Part of Naeba has opened this morning and there are some events going on at base at the moment. It's 'a bit at base and a bit up top' that's open at Naeba really, so quite limited.

Things are different at Kagura. Tashiro has opened this morning and suddenly almost all of the Kagura official area is now open. Not bad going at all for 8th December for sure. Snow depth isn't mid-season yet and we could do with the forecast storm to come and give us the copious amounts of snow that we are used to at Kagura, but definitely for 8th December there is no cause for complaint! Just get up there and enjoy it, I reckon.

The connection to Naeba with the Dragondola, a few courses at Tashiro, the top spring course at Kagura and the 'back to car park' run at Mitsumata aside, the official stuff is pretty much all open... but don't expext certain tree runs and more 'unofficial' areas to be open!

So what's going on with the weather then? Early on we even had the sun appearing but it has clouded over since then and it has been just cloudy for most of the morning with snow imminent. It's not even that windy at all, but perhaps the stormy conditions are just around the corner. Forecasts clash a bit this morning so we will just have to see what nature decides on but I am hoping to be able to report some decent snowfall in my report tomorrow.

Official resort snow depth:
Kagura - 130cm

Planned opening dates:
Kagura (Tashiro) on December 8th
Naeba on December 8th
