Welcome to the first day of the three day weekend. As I think I mentioned the resorts really really want to be open for today and this weekend as it's probably the first big weekend of the season. Missing it isn't an option!

The good news this morning is that pretty much all resort areas of Shiga Kogen are now open. The only resort areas that are not yet at least part open are Shibutoge and the small Kidoike area. Almost all of the other resorts are operating most lifts, but with some courses still not yet open we are not quite there yet. As you can see from the snow depth numbers below, we're still short of snow really and looking to this weekend to really top things up and allow everything to totally open up. Right now there's still things popping up out of the snow and it's generally just pretty thin on the ground.

Just a dusting of snow really this morning with not much more than a few cm in places. Actually as I write this there are some blue skies opening up as the clouds shuffle around quickly which is somewhat unexpected. We should see the snow clouds hang around though today. We should see a bit more snow today but while tomorrow may also start off calm, the heavy snowfall is still due to arrive tomorrow and continue through until around Monday. I wish I could give you something more definite!

Nighta operations this evening planned at the following resort area:

- Ichinose Family
- Kumanoyu
