It's a bright but cloudy start to the day here in Shiga Kogen. The sun trying to peek through from behind the cloudy but not quite managing that just yet. By the end of the day though we are hoping for some snowfall and for that to continue into the weekend. Followed by potentially heavy snow and strong winds later on Sunday into Monday. That's what the forecast tells us anyway.

I won't say we could do with more fresh snow again (...but we do!)

Normal season Shiga Kogen all-resort lift prices apply from today (booo!).

From tomorrow though, more should be opening up (hurray!).

Yes, from tomorrow more courses should be opening up meaning more connections between the resorts will be possible. No details on that at the moment, but that's the promise. New snowfall would surely help that cause.

Resort areas currently at least part open:

Sun Valley - 1 lift
Maruike - 1 lift
Mammoth - 2 lifts
Bundaira - open
Tannnenomori Okujo - open
Ichinose Family - 2 lifts
Ichinose Diamond - 2 lifts
Ichinose Kaminoyama - open
Yakebitaiyama - 2 lift
Okushiga Kogen - 3 lifts
Kumanoyu - 3 lifts
Yokoteyama - 6 lifts
