The fine weather has continued and this morning there is a bit more cloud around, but it is still bright with the sun out at the moment. Tomorrow is the beginning of the main part of Golden Week - 4 days holiday and the last 4 days of the season for most of Shiga Kogen. Expect a fair few people to be out there getting in that last slide on the remaining snow.

Lift operations at the moment this morning (and should be similar until May 6th):

Shiga Kogen Ropeway
Mammoth (1 lift)
Tannenomori (1 lift)
Ichinose Family (2 lifts)
Ichinose Diamond (1 lifts)
Terakoya (2 lifts)
Yakebitaiyama (2 lifts)
Okushiga Kogen (1 lift)
Kumanoyu (5 lifts)
Yokoteyama (5 lifts)
Shibutoge (1 lift)

There will also be nighta at Ichinose Family and Kumanoyu tonight.

Kumanoyu plans to keep open until 11th May. Yokoteyama (Number 1, 2, 3 ski lifts) and Shibutoge (Number 1 romance lift) plan to remain open until the end of May. Please note that from May 7th, the season tickets/joint Shiga Kogen tickets will not be valid there - you will need to buy a ticket on the day for 3000 yen to ride the lifts at both Yokoteyama and Shibutoge.
