[Please note that from now until the end of the season we will keep this Now report page updated at least a few times a week]

After a very foggy start to the day it has been a generally cloudy day here in Shiga Kogen and seems to be getting colder as the day moves on. We might even get to see some snow still later on.

After that though the clouds should clear up as we move into tomorrow which promises to be bright and sunny. It might stay cold tomorrow but as the we approach the weekend it will be getting warmer and warmer each day - around Friday we might see temperatures rise to around 10 degrees.

A good week to enjoy spring skiing in good weather. Don't forget the sunscreen and googles/sunglasses!
