Resort news update

Yokoteyama is also now part open

Original morning report

Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

It's good old mid-winter like cold and blowy snowy morning here. The wind is blowing the snow around and so somewhat difficult to give a number but I think 10cm is fair (and what my mostly wind-protected measuring areas is showing).

For now the only change in terms of resort operations that I can confirm is that at Yakebitaiyama the Karamatsu course and Number 2 lift are now open.

With more snow due today and into tomorrow, I expect news of more lifts and courses opening from tomorrow - though just at the moment I don't have anything confirmed to report.
