It is a bright blue sky sunny morning in Shiga Kogen from early on. In mid-winter we would be very happy to report that, but....

Anyway, if you are in the area today you'll be treated to some fantastic views of the surrounding mountains.

Hopefully you'll enjoy the skiing and snowboarding too. Here's a run down of the resort areas that have at least some of their slopes open. The numbers in brackets are the number of lifts operating in those areas):

Sun Valley (1)
Maruike (1)
Shiga Kogen Ropeway (1)
Bundadaira (2)
Mammoth (2)
Higashidateyama (upper part) (1)
Ichinose Family/Diamond (3)
Yakebitaiyama (3)
Okushiga Kogen (1)
Kumanoyu (4)
Yokoteyama (3)

Snow is still thin on the ground and most of the resorts are not linked up yet, so it's very patchy - but there's still fun to be had out there.

Pray for snow! (Which is hopefully due to be with us by the end of tomorrow...)
