It is another fine morning here in Shiga Kogen - more thin and wispy looking clouds around than there were yesterday but the sun is out and lots of blue sky again. Once again, it's quite a mild morning with a pleasant breeze.

Here's some good news... there is a decent chance that we might get some snow falling in Shiga Kogen over the weekend. Lower down in the valley it will be raining but up there, good chance of snow. So let's crossing all those fingers for that - would be brilliant to have some fresh snow to play in for the weekend.

For the upcoming weekend a few resorts that have been closed this week will be getting some lifts moving once again including Yakebitaiyama, Terakoya and Ichinose Diamond. For details please see below.

** Please note that the next Shiga Kogen Now report will be posted on Monday. Have a good weekend and see you on the other side.

Areas with lifts still operating on Friday (more to open for weekend - see below):
Mammoth (one quad)
Ichinose Family (one pair and one quad)
Okushiga Kogen (two pairs)
Kumanoyu (three pairs)
Yokoteyama/Shibutoge (one triple, four pairs)

Official resort snow depths as of Friday 13th April 2012 AM:

Yokoteyama:
190cm
