Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

It's actually quite cold this morning! And some fresh snow on the ground too! Much nicer than the rain yesterday, that's for sure.

Still, with other ski resorts in other areas announcing that they can't quite remain open as long as they originally planned (of course, unrelated to Shiga Kogen), there is always the chance that we might well have similar news here too. We shall see.

---

Update: actually, I already have a bit of lift news. Kumanoyu have announced that their Number 1 pair will be operating until 22nd April, rather than the original plan to go through until Golden Week.

I will try my best to keep on top of other such news - the resort specific information below has been updated this morning.

Next update before the weekend.

---

Temperatures are forecast to rise somewhat in the second half of the week and into the weekend with a run of sunny days also due.

---

The section of Route 292 between Shiga Kogen and Kusatsu is still closed - planned re-opening is at 10am on Friday 20th April.
