25 Nov 08: Opening Day.

The WeLoveSnow team were up bright and early on Saturday (22nd Nov) to see Kagura Resort open its doors for the first time this season. Some friends also came in from Tokyo to get a piece of the action. Originally planned to be only part open, the early snowfall on the 20th of November meant that we had the whole resort to explore. We even managed to find a short off piste-section with some powder. Not bad at all for the first day!

20 Nov 08: Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow...

Finally after what seems like an age, I woke up this morning to see Yuzawa town centre covered in a blanket of white snow almost 30 cm deep. What seems like a constant snow fall from around 10:00pm last night until the early hours of this morning, has completely changed the face of Yuzawa. This is the Yuzawa that everybody is so familiar with. This is Snow country.

This picture was taken behind Inamoto Ryokan at 9:00am this morning. Now that the snow has finally arrived, we are looking forward to the opening of Kagura and Naeba resorts on the 22nd of November even more!

4 Nov 08: Get Ready For The New Season!

The official opening dates for Kagura and Naeba have been announced and we are all counting the days to November 22nd. The WLS team will all be there to check out the resorts on opening day and provide you with feedback. This is the moment that we have been waiting for and we hope that you are all as excited as we are.

This picture of the main slope at Kagura was taken on October 30th and as you can see it is already shaping up to be a great season. Get ready everyone because Snow Country is back!
