Good news this morning. Heavy snow. That's what you wanted to hear isn't it? :) After the snow of yesterday and overnight I reckon we have seen 25-30cm or so fall and it is still coming down quite hard as I write this report. A wind is blowing things about a bit as well but not enough it seems to affect lift operations though I would expect a few to perhaps be moving slower than usual. Good to see the official snow depth numbers take a jump as well with quite a few places now reporting over 100, at last!

Snow is forecast for the day today and then clearing up to bring some clearer conditions to Shiga Kogen over the weekend. It's going to stay very cold right through into next week though, so should be a good weekend.

Things looking very quiet out there this morning. Perhaps a few people are waiting out to see if the conditions will clear up a bit. Personally, I hope they don't and we get another 20cm of snow!

Nighta operations this evening planned at the following resort areas:

- Ichinose Family
