Morning!

When I got up it was snowing lightly but as I'm typing this, it is actually coming down rather quickly.

The Okushiga Kogen area of Shiga Kogen is planning on opening tomorrow - it looks like their lower pair lift is moving now but perhaps it's just 'training' for tomorrow. Still, great to see other areas opening up and I would expect (hope) to see a few more lifts operating and courses open tomorrow. It may well depend on how much snow we get over the next 24 hours.

The snow clouds are expected to clear up tomorrow leaving us with generally fair weather over the weekend. And then decent snowfall is due from Monday.

---

Currently the following areas of Shiga Kogen are part open:

- Ichinose Family
- Takamagahara Mammoth
- Yakebitaiyama
- Kumanoyu
- Yokoteyama

None of the above resorts are 'linked up'/connected.
