Yesterday we were experiencing some blizzard-like conditions at times that affected resort operations. Lots of snow blowing around as well.

Things have cleared up for this morning and we are being treated early on to some bright blue skies and the sun is out. It remains very cold with Kumanoyu reporting a temperature of -14.5 degrees C. So a fair few layers needed!

Snow conditions out there are really very good right now. Still not huge snow depths but what's there is good. It's quiet too, so today is a great day to be on the slopes.

Tomorrow more of the area will be open - close to fully opening? - and expect more people to be in Shiga Kogen as it is a national holiday.

Over the next week or so there it looks likely that it won't be as cold and we can't expect huge snowfalls... more like a mix of fine weather with the odd snow shower. Lower down in Nagano there may well be rain this week but Shiga Kogen should escape that...
