Morning from Shiga Kogen, where from today more lifts are open and more connections between the different resorts are skiable. We are still not fully open with steeper slopes and some areas with not enough cover to open yet, but definitely a change with all of the major area now open.

Areas such as Giant and Terakoya opening properly for the first time this season.

Light snow is falling this morning and poor visibility with the mountains generally completely covered in cloud. There's just a cm or so of wettish snow settling on the roads and on tops of cars now. Snow showers on and off over the next few days. Tomorrow night we were due a potential storm but that seems to have been downgraded somewhat on the latest local forecast. Snowfall is still forecast though with colder conditions.

Hope you have a good weekend.
