The big thing this morning is the blizzardy like conditions. It is snowing, it is very cold and there's a strong wind blowing it all about to add to the mix. This wind is affecting a number of lifts and gondolas around Shiga Kogen including those at Okushiga and Yakebitaiyama. Not the 'friendlies' of conditions.

Get ready for another about face though as tomorrow will probably be sunny with clear skies. That will be a real contrast for those in Shiga Kogen for the weekend! It actually seems likely that we will see clearer conditions for a number of days though it should keep cold, only warming up mid-week. There's even signs of possible rain next week, but let's keep that quiet just for now and worry about it nearer the time!

For now, with new snow out there snow conditions should be good for those braving the elements. Tomorrow should be a fine day in all respects.

Nighta operations this evening planned at the following resort areas:

- Ichinose Family
- Yakebitaiyama
- Kumanoyu
