After the clear blue skies of yesterday morning, things have change round once again and this morning we have snowy conditions in the Shiga Kogen region. There isn't a ton of new snow to report but it is snowing and hopefully should be for most of the day. Taking a look at the official snow depth info from the resorts, it doesn't look like they have changed their numbers but there are more areas opening up today.

Yakebitaiyama has the No2 Gondola moving for the weekend and more of the Kumanoyu and Yokoteyama is open with a few other lifts starting to move, as below.

After today we can expect a few days of clearer weather. A look at the forecast gives us some very good hope for a good snowfall around Tuesday evening to Thursday, so fingers crossed for that.

To sum things up - more areas open, but still not really kicking into gear and low snow depths. There's enough to have fun though, and that's what matters.
