Just 2cm of fresh snow this morning but with a bit more of the resort opening - namely part of Uwanodai area.

It is still very limited though as we wait for more snow to accumulate, and if the forecast is correct we should be seeing more during the day today and through tomorrow as well. After that later on in the week.

At 11am this morning the ceremony for a safe season will be held at the resort (Uwanodai)
