Warm and quite windy this morning in Shiga Kogen. A balmy +4 degrees as of 9am here in the Maruike area. Wind isn't stopping lifts as far as I can tell but a few are running slow including the Number 2 Gondola at Yakebitaiyama. It really does feel like a spring morning.

Hopefully that won't last long, conditions set to deteriorate (ie. good for us!) and snow due into tomorrow. Conflicting forecasts of how much to expect so difficult to say what we can expect. Unfortunately, contrary to what I was saying the other day it does now look like we might get some rain before that snow with the temps warming up so much.

Should get much colder tomorrow though. Strong wind might affect lifts though. Unfortunately this weekend is really tricky one to predict...

Nighta operations planned for tonight at the following resort areas:
Ichinose Family
