It is snowing this morning in parts of Shiga Kogen - just cloudy in others and even the sun shining through in short bursts in other parts - and I don't have much in terms of cm to report. On a morning like this it is sometimes difficult to give an overview because of the varying conditions in different parts of the Shiga Kogen area. It looks like conditions are changing quite quickly as well

This being New Years Eve we can expect the resorts to be busy. Things weren't too bad actually in the areas I was yesterday and as of 10:30am lift lines seem to be generally moving quickly and smoothly. Gradually more people turning up though so just be prepared for busy slopes today and tomorrow in the area.

Where's the snow? I hear you ask! Well, it looks like we might get some decent snowfall tomorrow night into Monday, so look out for that. Temperatures are keeping very cold though and so the snow we have is keeping good and doing the job.

All the very best for the New Year!

Nighta operations this evening planned at the following resort area:

- Sun Valley
