Good morning.

The sun is out at the moment with some lovely looking cloud around and lots of blue sky.

It's keeping close.

I plan to post daily reports in a week or two when more of Shiga Kogen gets to open. Until we get into daily mode, I will report every now and again - including any snow news. There's not much snow due over the next few days with more of a chance of sun by the looks.

For now, two ski lifts remain operating:

- Kumanoyu Number 2 Pair B Line
- Yokoteyama Number 4 Pair

I am hearing that, apparently, the Number 2 lift at Takamagahara Mammoth might be opening from this Friday.

Official reported snow depths:

- Yokoteyama: 20cm
- Kumanoyu: 15cm
