It is a cold early morning here in Shiga Kogen but going to warm up.

The sun is out and we have clear blue skies above the region. Lots of that expected in the next 3-4 days.

Yesterday was really fun, with snow conditions that you would not expect for mid March. As we enter the second part of March, it's sad to think that there's only just over two weeks left for the whole of Shiga Kogen to be open (with some areas planning on closing at the end of the month). As I mentioned before though we may see some ski lifts opening into June!

I'll try to bring you information on planned closing dates when available.
