Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

The sun is out and it's mostly blue skies this morning and we are due for a weekend of fine weather conditions.

Monday brings with it the chance of some rain - chance of snow on Monday night in some higher elevations!?

More of the ski hills that are open for the holidays will be closing at the end of the day on Monday.

Beyond Monday we will be left with Kumanoyu and Yokoteyama remaining open. I'll be posting a report on Tuesday with the latest information I can find.
