It is a very warm start to the day in Shiga Kogen. Kumanoyu are reporting a temperature of 8.5 degrees and here in Maruike it is 8 degrees! Expect the snow conditions today to reflect that... but it is another sunny start to the day with fine weather so there are great views and... isn't it great to be skiing or snowboarding in mid April!?
