Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

Blimey, there's a whole lot of news to report to you this morning as a handful of resorts have cut back on their season.

Anyway, here goes:

Terakoya, Ichinose Diamond and Tannenomori have already closed.

Ichinose Family will only be open until... today!

Mammoth will be opening now just from this coming Saturday until Monday 30th April.

The quad lift at Kumanoyu will now not be open for skiing, and will be operating just for 'summer lift' operations.

The Yokoteyama and Shibutoge lifts will be open until Monday 30th April -- possibly beyond then, depending on the snow.

Phew. It all seems kind of sudden and whirlwind and a bit of a shock, but at the same time it's not that surprising given the weather we have had this spring season. We might even see some more changes...

The info below has also been updated with specific lift operations.

---

And how about this... some very light snow has reportedly being falling earlier this morning and it is cold. Right now just lots of cloud.

---

You can get to Shiga Kogen from the south via Manza, but the part of Route 292 that connects Shiga Kogen and Kusatsu in Gunma is currently closed.
