Morning from Shiga Kogen. And we're down to two now. Or actually none today.

Let me explain:

The Ichinose Family and Shibutoge lifts have now closed for the season. They just can't beat the warmth that we have had and the rain that we are having today. I can't remember any year previously when Shibutoge hasn't been open for Golden Week, and as you will see in the archives Yokoteyama/Shibutoge is often still going at the end of May. That just shows how 'different' this season has proved to be.

With those areas now closed, that just leaves us with Takamagahara Mammoth and Kumanoyu that remain 'open'. But...

Mammoth plans to re-open from tomorrow for Golden Week. It is not open today and there is currently no official mention of a planned last day.
And due to the weather conditions today (wind), Kumanoyu appears to be closed today.

That basically means that... everywhere is closed for today.

Hopefully tomorrow they will both be open (though Kumanoyu have said that they plan to continue until 1st May now, rather than the previous target of 5th May).

It all sounds complicated doesn't it. Sudden announcements don't help, but there you go.

If you want to get that last ski or board in, things are extremely limited now and time is fast running out.

There might even be a bit of snow falling tonight into tomorrow!
