After the heavy snowfall of yesterday morning we actually saw things clear up later in the day and some blue sky even! It was back to snow later on though and as a result of overnight snow we have another 15-20cm of snow in places this morning in Shiga Kogen.

As I write this I can actually see the sun shining through the clouds here in the Maruike area, but at the same time it is a snowing. I guess the sun is going to lose the battle today as we do have snow on the forecast for the day, tomorrow and Thursday - with a chance of this snowfall easing off properly on around Friday.

Tomorrow in particular, strong winds are forecast.

Visibility around the resorts looks generally ok this morning but conditions look like they might be quite changeable today.

Nighta operations this evening planned at the following resort areas:

- Ichinose Family
