Well it looks like it is sort of snowing outside but the roads are wet and it feels more like it is raining. Resorts around Shiga Kogen seem to be reporting snow more than rain but it's of the very wet and sleet-y variety. As I write this anyway.

It's also very windy this morning and that seems to be affecting some lifts out there especially more exposed ones. Right not is looks like Terakoya and Yakebitaiyama are being most affected.

I think those monkeys will be popular today!

Tomorrow should be calmer and the forecast is just for cloud but a chance of snow overnight and colder temperatures as well for the start of the new week.

Nighta operations this evening planned at the following resort area:

- Ichinose Family
- Ichinose Diamond
- Kumanoyu
