A warmer start to the day here in Shiga Kogen. Other than that, it's quite similar - bright, sunny and lots of blue skies. A few white clouds here and there, but overall it's going to be another warm spring day. And probably tomorrow too.

You're asking about fresh snowfall? Well, can't see much on the horizon alas. Perhaps a dusting tonight. Likely rain on Monday, even up here in Shiga Kogen as the freezing level rises up to 3000m+. After that a mix of cloud, sun and perhaps the odd thin layer of snow but nothing major.

Still holding out for the chance of another decent snowfall this month but that's just me wanting it!

Remember, some lifts moving in Shiga Kogen until the end of May, so still quite a way to go.

Nighta operations planned for tonight at the following resort areas:
Ichinose Family
Ichinose Diamond
Yakebitaiyama
Kumanoyu
