Not sure if it can really be called snow... more like wet sleet, but it is trying to snow in some parts of Shiga Kogen now while failing and raining in others. It's that borderline kind of weather out there this morning. Lift operations gradually seem to be getting back to something like normal and even though some still don't move in terms of terrain open it's pretty much 'open' out there. Today is a national holiday and while it is certainly not busy out there it remains to be seen how operations look tomorrow when we click back into normal weekday mode.

I haven't heard official confirmation from all the resorts, but I would presume that all nighta in Shiga Kogen will now be closed for the rest of the season.

Spring operation plans coming soon.
