Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

As I write my report this morning from here in Hasuike, it's bright with good visibility over to Higashitateyama - but light snow is falling! An odd mix.

There's a light sprinkling of snowfall around with a few cm on the ground in places since last night.

Snow is there on the forecast, getting heavier tonight and regularly into the weekend too. Let's see how it turns out.

Currently the following areas of Shiga Kogen are part open:

- Ichinose Family
- Takamagahara Mammoth
- Yakebitaiyama
- Kumanoyu
- Yokoteyama

None of the above resorts are 'linked up'/connected - we'll have to wait for more snow for that to happen.

Okushiga Kogen plans to open from Saturday and hopefully if there is more snow before then... more courses and lifts at the other resorts.
