Tomorrow sees the second part of Golden Week start up and the start of the last four (holi)days of the season for most of the ski resort areas around Shiga Kogen. Most of the resorts will be closed for the season come the end of the day on Monday. From Tuesday onwards, just Kumanoyu and Yokoteyama will remain open.

It has been keeping unseasonably cold. Tomorrow should see clearer skies than we have had over the last few and a bit warmer, but still not as warm as normal for the time of year. Wrap up decent if you are coming.

There's still enough snow around to have fun out there. Some bare patches here and there on the main runs that remain open, but there's enough. There has been some snow moving operations by some of the resort areas to try and ensure things can remain open. Down here in the Maruike area, it's pretty dry

The below resort areas are at least part open. Also up at Yokoteyama they have the moving elevator moving for tourists who want to go up to the top there - you don't need to be skiing or boarding. That's open from 9am until 3:30pm.

Remember too, you can now get to Shiga Kogen from the Gunma side on Route 292 via Kusatsu.

Have a fun Golden Week! I'll post my next report on the other side.
