The sun is out and there are beautiful blue skies above us; and it is keeping cold. There might be some snowfall tonight but slightly warmer conditions expected over the weekend before a return to snowy clouds around Monday.

Sometimes I wonder why more detailed official information isn't available for Shiga Kogen - and I don't mean just in English but in Japanese too. This season officially the 'pre-open' of Shiga Kogen was set for 19th November, the 'opening festival' on 3rd December and the 'grand opening' on 23rd December. There's scarce information available explaining exactly what all of those mean though. 19th November was the planned opening date for Kumanoyu but of course they were able to open yesterday. I think that the 'grand opening' refers to the date when each individual area of Shiga Kogen plans to be open. I have been trying to find a list of planned opening dates for each area, but without any success... will post when I have that information.

Areas of Shiga Kogen currently open:

A 600m long run at Kumanoyu area, serviced by one pair lift.
