Hello from Shiga Kogen.

Fresh snow in Golden Week! It has been really odd weather these last few days but the most important thing to say is that I can see fresh snow. And it's actually pretty cold.

Kumanoyu and Yakebitaiyama don't seem to be reporting the fresh stuff, but I have just measured 3cm and there is more than that in places. Though the main roads are clear. I imagine this will be the last snow of the season but it has given us a brief 'fresh' look which is always great to see.

The following ski areas are part open:

- Kumanoyu
- Yokoteyama / Shibutoge
- Terakoya
- Okushiga Kogen
- Ichinose Family
- Takamagahara Mammoth
- Yakebitaiyama

They plan to keep going until Wednesday.

Fine weather is forecast for tomorrow.

Kumanoyu and Yokoteyama plan to remain open beyond that date. I'll update you on the situation later in the week.
