Mid-winter conditions in Shiga Kogen this morning and strong winds are at the moment affecting some of the lift operations. In fact it looks like a fair few resort areas and lifts were not moving until just a short time ago as they cope with the bumper snowfall we have received overnight. At the moment it looks like just Terakoya and the upper areas of Nishitateyama are yet to get moving, though I would expect that to change soon.

So, limited operations aside, it is a good morning. There is a lot of new snow to play in, I would guess around 30-40cm in places. And it's light and powdery as well, just what we want.

Snow is likley to continue falling today, along with some fairly strong winds, but looking ahead things will probably calm down somewhat tomorrow and we may see some breaks in the cloud Monday and Tuesday. Having said that, the snowy conditions do look set to continue into the week with no bluebird days lined up just at the moment.

Nighta operations this evening planned at the following resort areas:

- Maruike
- Mammoth
- Ichinose Family
- Ichinose Diamond
