Morning.

Some fresh snow since my last report but not a whole lot. I am logging 2cm, Kumanoyu are reporting 5cm.

So while we do not have huge amounts of snow yet, more of Shiga Kogen is opening for the weekend - including parts of Yakebitaiyama and Yokoteyama, and expanded areas of Kumanoyu

I'm looking at the forecast and for the moment it seems to be showing more sun than snow over the next week; along with some milder conditions early in the week. So we can't realistically expect much more fresh snow support until at least later in the coming week.

The important thing now - before more snow comes - is for things to keep cold so we can enjoy what we have.
