Not much to report in terms of changes in weather, though Yakebitaiyama has managed to get one pair lift running. It's all very limited though and hard to recommend other than for a first slide of the season.

The snow has actually retreated once again over the last 48 hours. This morning has been a mild one as well and right now there's quite a bit of blue sky up above, and the result of all this is that basically apart from the few runs that are open, the snow has dried up. It should start getting colder again later on this evening and into tomorrow we might get to see another thin blanket of new snow turn things white once more.

It should stay cold and in the negatives for the coming week, though not a great deal to expect in terms of decent cm of new snow.

Patience, folks... it's still early!

Resorts part open [3rd Dec 11]:
Takamagahara Mammoth - one triple lift
Ichinose Family - one pair lift
Kumanoyu - one pair lift
Yakebitaiyama - one pair lift
