Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

And the whole region this morning is cloud-free with clear, blue skies and sunshine.

Sunscreen and strong sunglasses/goggles a must today.

A great day to be outside and sliding down the slopes, though there's no fresh snow to report.

We're not doing badly though!

Next snow? Probably Thursday-Friday.

Parts of Shiga Kogen are usually able to open through until early May (with some even until the end of May). Some areas start closing once March has finished though, so we have one more full month to go for 'fully open' status. Blimey, it's scary to think how fast the season whizzes by us. Slow down... please!!!
