Yesterday was a day of snow and it is still snowing this morning. That snow base is slowly and gradually growing, maybe 10cm or so since yesterday.

So right now light snowfall but the forecast tells us to expect weather conditions to clear up later on today and apart from snowfall later on tomorrow into Friday, we can expect a fair few days with clearer conditions in the region. Temperatures will always be staying well under zero though, so conditions should keep good.

Shibutoge opened up today as well so now we have every area of Shiga Kogen (at least part) open. We are still in need of more significant snowfall to get some of the steeper slopes opening up for the season though.

Nighta operations this evening planned at the following resort area:

- Takamagahara Mammoth
- Ichinose Family
- Ichinose Diamond
