It is a good morning here in Shiga Kogen.

The fresh snow that we wanted is here...

Kind of stormy conditions this morning. Kumanoyu are reporting 10cm of fresh early on (Yakebitaiyama, who often call numbers, are being coy on that this morning). But there is definitely a nice new layer on the ground.

Some lifts might be affected by wind this morning.

The snow is welcome though so come on, let's have it!!

All areas and connections at Shiga Kogen are now open (with just a few minor exceptions).
