The clouds rolled in yesterday as we expected them to and this morning we are back to the snow falling this morning in Shiga Kogen. It only started in the morning and so not a huge amount to show for it right now but it is coming down with some purpose right now and already we probably have 5-10cm accummulated - at this rate I think we can expect a decent showing by the end of the day. Bring it on, I say!

It's cold this morning as you might expect earlier on it was -10 degrees in Maruike and resorts reporting temperatures of between -5 and -10.

A few more resorts are showing the officially "fully open" signs as well now which is good to see - for the record the maru-maru fully open resort areas are Giant, Higashitateyama, Bunadaira, Nishitateyama, Terakoya, Yakebitaiyama, Kumanoyu and Shibutoge. All others getting close now. Remember, with changeable conditions and winds those things may well change within a day.

Clearer weather is forecast for the weekend so fingers crossed we'll get a decent snow haul over the next few days. Hope to bring further good news tomorrow morning.

Nighta operations this evening planned at the following resort areas:

- Ichinose Family
