    I haven't even left for this years ski trip yet, but the missus has already taken advantage of award flights to get us into CTS just before Christmas this year :) A mate is considering taking his (currently non-skiing) family to the club-med at Tomamu for Christmas. Does anyone have any info on how much of the piste is generally open at Christmas time?

    The historical depths all look ok, but I'm assuming those are up the top of the mountain, and I don't know how much cover it needs to be skiable.

    SYD - CTS direct (we hop from BNE). Depending on your QFF status the flights turn up either 353 (gold) or 297 (silver/bronze) days before departure.

    297 days from today is only Nov 4, so you won't see those award flights yet....

    Edit:
    MrsWokket is the travel nut, but I believe that's the case, yes.

    This thread is NOT about flights.
    It's about where and when to go in Japan for snow!!!
