...to be jolly! That's because several ski resorts in the Yuzawa / Minami Uonuma area are opening up in the next couple of days.
Early to mid-December in Snow Country is a bit of a mixed bag with great years, good years, so-so years, and last year, all mixed up together. This year is looking good so far. It was slow-ish to start with, but a couple of big storms have come through and dropped lots of snow. [We have shovelling blisters to prove it!]
A decent base has formed on most resorts so opening days are coming.
Maiko Snow Resort opens tomorrow (Friday 16th) and has a special 500 yen food/drink ticket present for all comers.
Iwappara opens on Saturday 17th December.
Both of those resorts are great for ski and snowboard lessons and are worth checking out. (If only someone would join the two of them up, as their top lifts are so close....)
GALA Yuzawa also opens on Saturday. Naeba Ski Resort is open now and will start running more lifts on Saturday. Kagura and Tashiro are also open and conditions are good.
It is a great time to come to the mountains and we have an awesome team of seasoned professional coaches ready to help you enjoy your time on the Japanese snow.
What are the odds of a White Christmas this year...?
