With the start of the 17-18 ski season about a month off at some of the earlier opening ski resorts (* few exceptions aside), here is a bit of an update to let people know what we are up to at the moment.

We are in the process of updating ski resort information on SnowJapan.

We would actually prefer to have all that work already done and dusted by now. But unfortunately, we can only get these updates made towards the end of the year, simply due to the fact that lots of ski hills around Japan do not (finalise and) update their own information until November or even December. And that includes a fair few of the larger and more popular ski resorts.

So we are currently working on gradually checking and making updates every day and trying to get things updated as quickly as possible. SnowJapan covers all of Japan, so we have 500+ ski hills to update! Hopefully you can see how that is a rather time-consuming process!

For those asking about specific season opening dates: ski resorts usually plan to open around the same time every season. So even if the planned opening dates on our pages have not yet been updated... you can use last years planned dates as a decent guide as to when they will be aiming to open this season.

As the season approaches, over the coming few weeks you will also start to see some updates to our "Now' snow reports.

Lots to look forward to. Gambarimasu!

Oh, by the way.... if you know of any ski resorts that we have not yet updated on SnowJapan, but they have their official (website) information already updated for the 17-18 season, please do let us know and we'll get on to those with priority.
Just email us at editor@snowjapan.com.
Thanks for the support.

Update 28th November

There are still about 50 ski hills around Japan (mostly smaller ones) that have not yet updated their information for the 2017-2018... which basically means that we are unable to update our info either.
It's actually rather frustrating!

Perhaps they are going to make updates once we get into December (?!)

Anyway, from tomorrow we need to get onto some other pressing matters for a few days, and so after today it will probably be early next week before we can get back to this issue. Surely they will have updated their info by next week!
