Relatively mild conditions this morning (which still means we are below zero!)

After the sun of yesterday, the runs will be 'suberiyasui' (easy to slide!) this morning. Hopefully it won't warm up too much. Don't think so as the sun isn't out like it was yesterday... more of a clouding over picture this morning but still some blue sky around.

Night skiing (and inded snowboarding) available from today at a few of the areas around Shiga Kogen - details below.

Well, it's the first "big weekend" of the snow season and most of Shiga Kogen is now open.
