It's a beautiful day in Shiga Kogen.

The sun is back out this morning for a classic spring ski morning. Things started off fairly chilly but has been quickly warming up with a high of around 6 degrees.

Tomorrow, we might even see a sprinkling of snow according to the latest local forecast. If we do though it shouldn't last long and will clear up quick leaving us with similar conditions today for the most part right through until the weekend. We can expect warm temperatures as well, rising towards the weekend.

So we are really into spring ski territory now. Come with that in mind and there's a ton of fun still to be had.

There are perhaps more people in Shiga Kogen this weekend than last, but it certainly is in no way of thinking 'busy'.

-Mammoth
-Ichinose Family
-Ichinose Diamond
-Terakoya
-Okushiga Kogen
