Conditions did indeed clear up yesterday and this morning there is no new snow to report overnight. There was a few cm during the day yesterday but nothing that is really changing those resort snow depths.

We had cloudless skies late last night and this morning so after a cold early morning we are now being treated to some clear blue skies. Temperatures are rising but they will stay below zero and keep cold so the snow conditions should keep. The cloudless skies may not last that long though as we do have snowfall forecast for tonight and into tomorrow so expect to see clouds moving in this afternoon.

Right now it is -6 degrees in Maruike. Yakebitaiyama reporting a temperature or -12 degrees at 10:30am this morning.

The slopes are gradually getting busier today as people turn up for the New Year holidays. Still, I wouldn't say it was busy out there and there's certainly untouched snow still to be found. One of the good things about Shiga Kogen covering such a large area. If you are staying in Shiga Kogen, ask the locals or your hotel staff and they may be able to share some secret tips!

Nighta operations this evening planned at the following resort area:

- Takamagahara Mammoth
- Ichinose Family
- Ichinose Diamond
- Yakebitaiyama
- Kumanoyu
