The skies cleared up yesterday after the snowy start and this morning we are enjoying fine sunny weather (after a more cloudy start).

The news today is that Yokoteyama has part opened and Kumanoyu and Yakebitaiyama have both opened up a bit more course area.

Slowly more is opening but we could do with a really 'heavy' snow even to kick things off in style. Could this weekend provide that? It's looking quite promising with snow forecast from tonight in this northern region of Shiga Kogen and through the weekend.

Fingers crossed!
