A bit of rain yesterday afternoon. And a lot of wind this morning, the unfriendly southerly kind... don't have any details available but I would not be surprised if some lifts were affected.

Mostly cloudy though at the start of today though rain is expected again. It feels too warm for the chance of snow to be contemplated even up here.

News about the opening of the section of Route 292 that connects Shiga Kogen with Gunma Prefecture. It gets buried in large amounts of snow during the winter months of course and earlier this month diggers were out there starting to carve out the road. They plan to have that section of road open from 10am on Friday 24th April, so a week from today. Once that is open, you can get to Shiga Kogen from the south via Kusatsu. Also makes for a great ride as well with impressive snow walls as well as beautiful scenery.
