It got a bit cloudy later in the day yesterday but we didn't get any snow or rain.

It is another blue sky fine morning here early on and will likely rise to about 6 degrees midday. Similar conditions are also forecast for tomorrow as well.

Gala Yuzawa have opened an additional course in the Northern Area as well today (making it 5 courses open in total there) and today Naeba will be opening an additional course (Number 3 gelende). Conditions at Kagura, Gala and Naeba range from good - very good due to the decent snowfalls high up over the weekend. Expect them to be busy as other resorts struggle to open.

Yuzawa Kogen have also announced that they are going to open up their upper slopes on Friday (22nd).

Town level ski resorts are facing opening delays though. Every day is important now as most places expected to open by this weekend at the latest, but the signs are unfortunately not good at the moment. The forecast is for fine weather for today and tomorrow, then cloud and mild temperatures on Friday and Saturday and fine weather on Sunday and so - unless the forecast changes considerably - it is looking very unlikely that more resorts will be able to open before Christmas.

NASPA Ski Garden last night announced that there is just 10cm on the slopes and basically no chance of opening on the 23rd as planned. Other resorts will probably be doing the same and basically just be on stand-by and open up as soon as they can when the snows arrive.
