Each year we run a competition to pick the first day of the season. The rules are
- The first day the lifts open for skiers and boarders at any one of the resorts in Hakuba.
- One date per person. If 2 or more people choose the same date then we will have a draw out of a hat to choose the winner.
- The date must be chosen at least one week in advance
- If a date isn’t chosen then it’s the closest date before.
The prizes are
- A Monkey Rider hoodie.
- 3000 yen voucher at the White Horse Bar in Echoland.
So go to the bottom of this blog and put your date in the comments section or email me HERE and I will add it. Good luck. Remember that the resorts will open as soon as there is enough snow on the ground so it’s pretty much any time now.

thanks everyone for putting in your date. Hakuba local Matt Dunn was very keen to get on the hill and with a good knowledge base on the weather here he put in for the 11th November. Well, we should see some snow down low today so he wasn’t far off but.unfortunately no lifts running at this stage.
