The good news is that the lower slopes now once again have a bit of a white covering - if not patchy. Yesterday there were a few cm of fresh snow in the village and the resort was reporting 10cm of snow... so we still of course need more for things to open up.

So the resort remains on standby and will open as soon as is possible. When that will be is anyones guess still - it looks like we might get more snow on Thursday and Friday, but as the forecast stands probably that will not be enough to get things going and we may well need to wait longer.

This morning the temperature in the village is hovering around 0 degrees and the upper parts of the mountain are covered in cloud.

Whether the resort opens or not, on this coming Saturday at 11am on the Uwanodai course area there will be a formal "Opening Ceremony". Too add to the possible confusion, the runs will open before then if there is enough snow! So it's just a formality really - but one where you might get some free food if you attend... hurray! Fingers crossed that the resort will actually be able to open then.
