Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

The sun is out this morning and there's mostly blue skies over the region.

It should be a very good morning.

Cold early on but temperatures are on the way up starting today. The next few days are going to see some warm temps recorded. Lower down in the valleys it might hit 10C. Up here in Shiga Kogen hopefully it won't get more than 5C, but that is unseasonably warm. Obviously we don't want the recent snow to be subjected to warmth.

Fingers crossed everyone.

All areas and connections at Shiga Kogen are now open (with just a few minor exceptions).
