Cloud and rain for the day yesterday here and this morning for now it is just cloudy but rain on and off is what the forecast is telling us to expect today.

It was relatively mild last night with a low of about 5 degrees in town and it's not much higher than that now as of 8am. Temperatures will rise to around 9 degrees in town later on this afternoon.

We have better visibility this morning so can see that the top areas of the mountains have a dusting of white up there.

Kagura are reporting 5cm of fresh snowfall since yesterday in upper areas.

On the subject of Kagura, yesterday they decided that from today (Saturday) they are going to get their Kagura Number 1 quad lift moving as well as opening part of the Kagura Park ('jib items only'!) from the afternoon. So the main course at Kagura should be open this morning (1500m in length) and while I expect cover the snow isn't 'Kagura deep' yet. The Mitsumata area remains a connecting course to get to Kagura.

Forecast is unfortunately still looking like from tomorrow starting to clear up and during the week sun and warmer conditions. The signs are that we are going to have to wait a bit longer for that first decent snowfall here in town.

We have quite a lot of people emailing SnowJapan asking us if there'll be any resorts open on particular dates. If only we knew the answers! All I can suggest is that you keep an eye on our reports as well as the forecast, and to get an idea of how previous seasons have gone read through the archive reports. There's lots of them.
