Morning from Shiga Kogen.

And it's a good one with a haul of around 14cm of fresh snowfall I am measuring on the ground since last night.

As we approach 9am, I'm reminded of yesterday morning. There's a bit of sunshine here in Maruike, visibility is good... and very light snow is falling lazily from the skies. Varied conditions early on then, depending on which part of Shiga Kogen you find yourself in.

We may have more today but clearer conditions are forecast for tomorrow before snow clouds making a welcome return on Friday. Monday looks very promising too with that lovely phrase 'heavy snow' on the forecast.

We can perhaps expect some more course areas to open up this weekend, and the Okushiga Kogen resort is scheduled to be open from Saturday.

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.
