Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

Ah, good. I bring you news of snow! Not huge amounts but I am measuring 6cm and I hear from a friend '10cm' where he is at Ichinose and we are looking (almost) all white once again. It has been snowing lightly early on this morning but clearer skies are forecast.

Yakebitaiyama plan to get their Number 2 lift operating from tomorrow along with the 850m Karamatsu Course. And Mammoth plan to get their quad lift going from Saturday.

Expect more to start opening up as the snow arrives.

More snow due tonight.

Come on!!!!
