This is a bit more like it!

The morning rain yesterday turned into sleet and then in the afternoon it was snowing. It's still snowing now actually and outside SnowJapan HQ in Minamiuonuma we have probably around 10-15cm of snow on the ground. Not a massive amount for sure, but it's the first cm on the ground and a very welcome sight indeed. The forecast is for continued snow through the day today and tomorrow as well, so let's see it build up.

Kagura were last night reporting 15cm in the Mitsumata car park and this morning reporting 20-40cm of fresh snow up there on their slopes. From today the Mitsumata area will be used as a 'connection' to Kagura. Which means no more shuttle bus needed. So here's the line up at Kagura this morning, the first four being 'lifts open to get you there' so to speak:

- Mitsumata Ropeway
- Mitsumata Number 1 Quad lift
- Mitsumata Number 3 Romance pair lift
- Kagura Gondola
- Kagura Number 1 Quad (every day)
- Kagura Number 1 Romance pair lift (holidays)

I would imagine that with continued snowfall today, they will quite quickly be getting more terrain open up, (perhaps even today and probably tomorrow - just guessing there).

The Tashiro Ropeway is now scheduled to be open from tomorrow, so no opening there this morning.

There's no word yet from Iwappara and Joetsu Kokusai but surely there's not enough snow yet to open. They both planned to open today so will now be opening up as soon as they can.
