Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

As with many regions of Japan, it has been relatively mild over the last few weeks.

The good news is that this morning feels rather cold and there is some light snow falling and a thin layer of snow on the ground in places. I was just over in Ichinose and feel confident that I can 'award' the reports 1cm. Right now the sun is out.

The Kumanoyu resort area has been trying to pump out some 'snow' from the snow-making machines, but they have this morning said that they have stopped due to temperature. It is looking like their hoped-for planned opening this Saturday (17th November) is going to be very (very) difficult. I wouldn't expect it.

The forecast for later on next week looks like it might be quite encouraging. I'll be with you again next week!

---

The section of the Route 292 road that connects Shiga Kogen with Gunma Prefecture will be closed for the winter from 1:00pm today - and it will then be closed until 19th April 2019. Access to Shiga Kogen is by Route 292 from the north-west.

Shiga Kogen Now ski lift operation notes:

Kumanoyu was hoping to get a lift moving this coming Saturday (17th) though it is looking very unlikely as I write this.
