No new snow to report this morning but I do have something else to report...

Kagura will be fully open* from tomorrow, Thursday 11th December. Hurray!

(*By fully open, they don't include the top Kagura Number 5 Romance lift, which this season plans to get going on New Years Day, and the Tashiro Number 2 lift. So 'almost nearly fully open' really.)

Word play aside though, that's of course good news to be able to report.

It's interesting that the top lift at Kagura will be opening from 1st January as well. That one used to be only open late in the season but they have been bringing that forward the last few.

Yesterday we ended up having snow falling for quite a lot of the time, but it didn't amount to new cm on the ground.

This morning it's a cloudy start to the day and around 0 degrees, but the forecast tells us that sun is likely later on so a clear up is on the cards. It will also warm up a bit more than it has been with a high of around 5 or 6 degrees likely later on in the afternoon.

Bit warmer still tomorrow before temperatures drop again as we head into the weekend and still the chance of heavy snow.
