Monday morning again! How was the weekend for you? Saturday brought with it some rain/wet snow for a while there in places and yesterday the sun was out and it warmed up into a fine spring day.

This morning is more of a hazy start to the day than yesterday but warm and calm all the same. The forecast is telling us to expect some rain later on today and into tomorrow and after that clearer conditions again. Typical spring time weather really.

Lift operations at this time of the season always become somewhat confusing with all the different resorts having different policies - and seemingly adjusting without much notice. The above info seems to be correct at the time of writing, but always worth a latest check if you are planning to come to Shiga Kogen for some last runs of the season.

Areas with lifts still operating on Monday:
Mammoth (one quad)
Ichinose Family (one pair and one quad)
Okushiga Kogen (gondola and two pairs)
Kumanoyu (three pairs)
Yokoteyama/Shibutoge (one triple, four pairs)

Official resort snow depths as of Monday 16th April 2012 AM:

Yokoteyama:
190cm
Kumanoyu:
185cm
Ichinose Family:
150cm
Okushiga Kogen:
150cm
