Hello from Shiga Kogen.

The sun is out and the start to the season is looking bright too, with Kumanoyu announcing that it will indeed be part open from tomorrow. That area plans to have the Number 2 pair lift operating with a 30-50m wide, 600m long ski course open. The snow isn't deep yet but enough for that start.

And it looks like there should be snowfall over the weekend too.

I won't be here over the weekend, but will post a report early week with the latest.

I plan to be posting daily in early December.
