It doesn't seem that long ago since I was posting that end of season report in May. Things were warming up then, and now they are cooling down again after a fairly hot but unusually wet summer in the region.

The autumn colour have been fantastic this last week or so and everwhere is looking very beautiful. We did actually have our first snowfall of the season a week or two back, though it did not last long and quickly melted away to make room for the peak autumn time. The lifts that are moving in Shiga Kogen are still in "green season" mode of course and once we get into November they will closing as resorts get ready for the winter.

It's looking like we will have a rather wet weekend here, but come around Tuesday and into Wednesday we may well see another sprinkling of snow on the upper slopes. We are still a fair way off the winter season of course but it is always exciting to see some snow fall.

Look out for more reports in the run up to the season
