Good morning from Shiga Kogen. Well, actually, not so great really. Because it's raining. Lots of mist as well so visibility is generally really poor.

But. We are still hopeful for snow before tomorrow. Apologies that I am not going to be able to post a report until Monday, but do take a look at the webcams in the Daily Reports section of the site to see what is happening.

It's the last few days of the season for a few areas, as noted below.
