08 Dec Winter 22/23 Kicks Off With Snow!
Yeah! We are back sliding again with the opening of Kagura today (December 8th 2022).
It has been a bit of a wait this year with Kagura’s planned opening on November 23rd being pushed back until today. We have had very mild weather and it has only been recently that the temperatures have dropped to winter-ish levels. Kagura has managed to open a small part of the resort and were delighted to do so today with snow falling. It is a bit of a waiting game now with many people nervously eyeing the weather forecasts. Most of the other resorts in town are aiming to open up on 16th or 17th December but many of the slopes are still looking quite bare. We know that the weather here can drop lots of snow in a very short time, so things can open quickly even if there was not much snow coverage. We hope that we don’t have to post about delayed openings later next week.
Anyway…. it’s great to be back on snow! And we hope you get to join us soon. Our instructors were up at Kagura today skiing and snowboarding and they can’t wait to get back to teaching soon.
