It is a fine morning for the opening ceremony for Shiga Kogen this morning. Lots of blue sky, lots of sunshine and just a few white clouds.

It's mild too and right now +2C.

Yakebitaiyama opens this morning - with the big help of snow making machines - to join the other three resort areas that are part open. There's not much natural snow on the ground at all yet, so the openings are all very limited.

A drop in temperatures and an appearance by snow clouds looks due around late Monday into Tuesday. Fingers crossed we'll get some decent snowfall...
