Morning from Shiga Kogen.

There's no new cm to add but light snow was falling earlier on. The sun is out now with increasing blue skies.

The next scheduled report before the weekend - until then keep an eye on the forecasts (at time of writing showing a mix of fine weather with a bit of rain mid week).

Note the planned lift opening info below as some lifts are open only on weekends. Broadly speaking the Okushiga area, the central Ichinose area and the Kumanoyu and Yokoteyama areas remain open.

---

The section of Route 292 between Shiga Kogen and Kusatsu is still closed with a planned re-opening at 10am on Friday 20th April.
