We had snow forecast for today and while it has been snowing on and off, nothing major really... perhaps 5cm or so in places and it hasn't really affected the official snow depths at many of the resorts around town as of this morning.

Resorts are doing the best they can with the less-snow-than-hoped-for that we have now and actually doing pretty good I would say as pretty much most of the areas of Shiga Kogen are now up and running. We could still of course do with a good 50cm dump of snow overnight, but it doesn't look likely in the coming week or so and we are likely to have to make do with some regular small topups.

Late on Friday into Saturday is looking the most promising so cross those fingers and lets hope the weather co-operates.

As the New Year fast approaches, so do many people to Shiga Kogen. The slopes will likely be busy over the next few days as people celebrate the New Year in the snow.

Nighta this evening at the following resort areas:

- Sun Valley
- Yakebitaiyama
- Ichinose Family
- Ichinose Diamond
- Kumanoyu
