It was very cold overnight and early morning here in Shiga Kogen. No fresh snow to report though with no clouds around to do the business. Lots of sunshine and clear blue skies.

Shiga Kogen has five resort areas that are part open at the moment but things are still very limited due to the lack of snow.

While this morning feels like a mid-winter air kind of morning, the snow on the ground is a different story as we wait for the major event to really get things kicking into action.

Having said that there are the areas open and you can definitely have some fun sliding around while we wait for the main event.

People keep on asking when will that happen? If only we knew! Everyone here is of course talking about it - no snow means no guests and no income for many people, so it's pretty important.

The forecast for the coming week is for a bit more of this sunny weather but a change due on Thursday into Friday with precipitation expected. Hopefully that will be as snow. We'll have to keep an eye on those temperatures though as they look likely to rise a bit...
