Here we are into the very last stage of the season.... only Yokoteyama and Shibutoge remain part open in the Shiga Kogen resort area now.

They're not putting a date on how long they plan to stay open apart from "late May" - but it will probably be another week or two. Basically they will stay open as long as they can. Snow is getting patchy up there even now, so the runs are limited... at Yokoteyama the No2 course is open and the King Course is part open while the 3 runs at Shibutoge remain open. There's 2 lifts open - the Yokoteyama No2 Skylift and the Shibutoge lift. The run that connects the two areas though now doesn't have enough snow and so is closed meaning that the two places need to be got to separately unfortunately, though the ticke you can buy does cover both.

The moving walkway that allows tourists to get to the lift is also open so it's a mix of skiers, snowboarders and tourists going up there now.

Last chance for that last slide perhaps?

Official resort snow depths as of 16th May 2011 AM:

Yokoteyama:
90cm
