Lovely day yesterday and got quite warm midday. It's even warmer this morning with temperatures above zero. +4 here in Maruike.

And rain is falling.

As you might expect, no new snow to report. So cloudy skies and rain (borderline sleet in places) but more importantly a moderate wind in exposed places which is affecting lift operations at some of the ski areas this morning.

Temperatures are forecast to drop later on today and I am hoping I can report fresh snow in tomorrows report. Snow clouds due over Shiga Kogen through the coming week, so fingers crossed we can get a decent amount out of them.

Nighta operations planned for tonight at the following resort areas:
Ichinose Family
Ichinose Diamond
Yakebitaiyama
Kumanoyu
