Goryu and Happo are now open for the 2007/2008 season. I missed the opening day for Goryu yesterday but made it to Happo today for their opening day. Although there’s only maybe 15cm at the bottom of the mountain the top half is looking very good indeed. Probably a metre or so has settled above 1300m in the last week setting up an excellent base for the snow to come.
Not super deep (maybe lower calf deep) but pretty decent powder lay in await at the top of the gondola. By the time we took pics it had already been tracked out but not bad for the first day of the season in November!!
