A very happy new year to you all.

And the new year has started off well here in Shiga Kogen, with a 18cm of fresh snow on the ground behind my place this morning. I am hearing from around the areas of up to 30cm falling in places on the mountain overnight which is of course very good to hear.

The Kumanoyu resort are now officially this morning declaring themselves as 'fully open' and I expect bit by bit we will see more runs opening for us today with this fresh snow to play in.

We're still not drowning in snow here yet of course, but it's a good improvement all the same for New Year the skiers and boarders here.

It would be great if we could have a run of days of this kind of fresh snow, but unfortunately it's going to be clearing today and from tomorrow it's still expceted to get slightly warmer. Maybe a bit of snow on Sunday night, but after that it is probably going to be Tuesday before the temperatures drop again to more mid-winter levels and we get more snow.
