Hopefully the rain has stopped for a bit, after two very wet days. Another light dusting up at Tenjin last night, although it was rain down here in the valley. Still only one lift open at the top.
The forecast is for a bit more rain this afternoon but things should be clear and fine for the weekend so hopefully we will be able to toast the end of another season on Sunday in the sunshine. Read more ...
Shiga Kogen Now!
Friday 14th May 2010, 9:41am
Light snow, cloud
We are experiencing some very strange weather for the middle of May. Yesterday, we have had some snow fall in Shiga Kogen and it is snowing this morning as well. Not huge amounts of course more like some sprinklings but we are back to white once again. It is cold and almost winter-like once again with temperatures down under zero once again - winter just isn't giving up.
I have heard also that the road connecting Shiga Kogen with Gunma is closed due to these conditions, but that will surely be open again quickly.
Weather conditions should be more spring-like over the weekend with clearer weather likely.
Official resort snow depths as of 14th May 10:
Yokoteyama: 90cm Shibutoge: 90cm
Yokoteyama/Shibutoge plan to be open until late May. Read more ...
