Just a quick update though there is not much to report as we haven't had any more significant snow at all since the last report. A slight cover of fresh snow about 1300m and now we officially have 20cm on the Chuo course and 15cm on Utopia.

Tomorrow sees the official opening and safery ceremony for the resort. It will take place at 11am on the Uenodai course. This ceremony will take place whether the resort can actually open or not - and right now with the general lack of snow on the slopes that will be 'not'! We will just have to patiently wait for the snow to arrive. The ropeways are still moving - just can't ski or snowboard down.

A glance at the forecast shows a good chance of snow higher up from later on tomorrow night with rain lower down in the village and hopefully continuing through Monday with hopefully snow down to the village.
