Hello and good morning from here in Shiga Kogen.

We had pretty mild conditions yesterday and overnight - as expected - so the snow out there will be pretty hard early on today maybe softening up.

There's a fairly strong southerly wind this morning and it is generally cloudy.

Snow. We want fresh snow. I hope to be bringing you some news of that tomorrow morning. That isn't due to last too long with some sunshine around Tuesday but a really good cold winter front coming later in the week and that does look exciting. We could be in for the heavy snowfall that we are all hoping for.

More lifts and courses are trying to get open as we play with the snow we got. Most of the ski hills of Shiga Kogen are now at least part open. This morning the Higashitateyama gondola, but the Higashiyama slope is not open yet as there is not enough snow. The Gondola is effectively currently used to get to the (part) open Terakoya and Ichinose areas.

So things remain all a bit dis-connected, but if we get that heavy snow later in the week we should see things opening up pretty quickly.
