It has been snowing since yesterday in the region, though not quite as much as we were expecting with the forecast like it was. Probably 15cm or so since my report on Friday.

We have a few more resort areas opening up now, though snow depth is still around just 30-40cm around the resorts. The latest from around the resorts is as below, subject to change at short notice!

Sun Valley - 1 lift
Mammoth - 2 lifts
Ichinose Family - 2 lifts
Ichinose Diamond - 1 lift
Yakebitaiyama - 2 lifts
Okushiga Kogen - 3 lifts
Kumanoyu - 3 lifts
Yokoteyama - 6 lifts

From today, I'll be updating the official snow depth numbers are resort areas that are at least part open - see below. Please keep in mind that these are the official numbers provided by the resort areas themselves.... sometimes for one reason or another they don't reflect the new snowfall that has fallen in a day. Just think of them as a general reference is probably the best way to look at them...

Official resort snow depths as of Sunday 9th December 2012 AM:

Yokoteyama:
40cm
Shibutoge:
40cm
Kumanoyu:
