Strong winds this morning seem to have calmed down a bit for now, but it is feeling wintery today in Shiga Kogen. It has been snowing since last night and I would say perhaps 20cm or so of snow, perhaps more in places, this morning.

With the new snow, more of Shiga Kogen has opened up - good timing for a national holiday as well today - and with heavy snow due tomorrow I think by the weekend pretty much all of Shiga Kogen should be operating. At last!

So lets look at the forecast. It's looking good for heavy snow tonight into tomorrow (30-40cm in the next 24 hours?) with more snow continuing into the weekend.

Lifts currently operating in the different resort areas of Shiga Kogen. Hopefully it won't be long before I don't need to check these things as the place will soon be 'fully open'!

Sun Valley: 2 lift
Maruike: 1 lift
Hasuike: 1 lift
Giant: 2 lifts
Bunadaira: 1 lift
Takamagahara: 1 lifts
Nishitateyama: 1 lift (upper)
Ichinose Family: 4 lifts
Terakoya: 2 lifts
Ichinose Diamond: 2 lifts
Yakebitaiyama: 3 lifts
Okushiga Kogen: 2 lifts
Kumanoyu: 4 lifts
Yokoteyama: 4 lifts

Shiga Kogen Now ski lift operation notes:

Most parts of Shiga Kogen are now open and with more snow today and tomorrow I would guess that pretty much the whole resort area should be open by the weekend.
