Just a dusting really since my report yesterday here in Shiga Kogen.

It is a national holiday here in Japan today and resorts simply want to - and need to - be open. There's a bit of news on that front with the Bunadaira, Ichinose Diamond and Okushiga Kogen areas part opening and a few more lifts moving at resorts that have already been open. It's actually getting difficult keeping track of the details now - a heavy snowfall to allow everything to be open will be such a big help to all of us!

More might be open today but it's all still limited with not enough snow so do keep that in mind. Hopefully that will all change soon... this weekend?
