All change with conditions this morning. After snow falling yesterday and overnight, this morning we wake up to the sun out and lots of blue sky in Shiga Kogen. While it was snowing for the most part of yesterday it was the kind of snow that doesn't really result in much accummulation and so there's no really change in numbers and conditions this morning. The biggest change seems to be Yakebitaiyama who are reporting 10cm increase in snow depth. They have started moving their No2 quad lift this morning. Over at Kumanoyu, they are now running three pair lifts (No2 A, No2 B, No4).

It remains cold still though with a temperature of -5 degrees out there and dipping into minus double digits higher up.

Forecast? Fine weather for the weekend, perhaps some snow around Monday night, then more clear conditions next week. Good news is that temperatures should stay low and below 0 through the week.

Official snow depths [10th Dec 11]:
Takamagahara Mammoth - 20cm
Ichinose Family - 20cm
Kumanoyu - 30cm
Yakebitaiyama - 30cm
Terakoya - 30cm

Resorts part open [10th Dec 11]:
Takamagahara Mammoth - one triple lift
Ichinose Family - one pair lift
Kumanoyu - three pair lifts
Yakebitaiyama - one pair lift, one quad lift
