Today, round about the time I am posting this actually (10am), the section of Route 292 road that connects Shiga Kogen with Kusatsu on the Gunma side re-opens after being closed for the season. This means that you can now get to Shiga Kogen from that side. Late season ice and snow events aside, it should be open now for all of the 'green season' up through until November. It makes for a great drive and highly recommended.

Temperatures have kept fairly low this week though the snow has continued to get thinner on the ground.

This morning we are treated to clear skies.

Tannenomori Okujo, Ichinose Diamond, Terakoya and Yakebitaiyama will be running some lifts from Saturday as we enter the Japanese Golden Week holiday period.

Official resort snow depths as of Thursday 25th April 2013 AM:

Yokoteyama:
135cm
Shibutoge:
140cm
Kumanoyu:
130cm
Mammoth:
