Hello and good morning from Shiga Kogen.

I was hoping to post a report yesterday but circumstance prevented it... anyway I can this morning tell you that we had just under 10cm of fresh snow yesterday here in Shiga Kogen. What a lovely mid-April surprise and of course most welcome.

It is another cold morning here but will be warming up more as things return to 'spring like' over the coming days.

We're still over three and a half weeks away from the remaining resorts due closing date. Ichinose Diamond were planning on continuing but their season is now over. Let's see how the coming weeks go... there's some rain expected by Thursday and with the freezing point way above our peaks we can't really expect it to be snow here unfortunately.
