I haven't been up there today - I'm actually in Nagano at the moment - but the Shibutoge lift still plans to be open through until Sunday... which will most definitely see the end of the 2013/2014 season. Generally fine conditions are forecast for the weekend if you so inclined!


This is my last Shiga Kogen Now report for the season.

The season started on Saturday 16th November 2013 with just the one lift moving at the Kumanoyu area. I make that 191 days of lift movement... over 6 months! That's some going. Of course it was a while before things got going and lots of the lifts in Shiga Kogen have long since stopped moving, but still - that's one long season.

I have been reading the other Now report wrap ups for 13/14 and a fair few of them - at least the ones in this region of Honshu - ring a bell. It has been up and down and not much of the full on long-lasting blizzard conditions. Still, get the timing right and there were some excellent conditions to enjoy (or, get timing wrong and be disappointed!)

Please do take a look through the archives of the reports... not only for 13/14 but for other seasons too.

We already have a tentative opening date for 2014/2015 ----> Saturday 15th November. We need the snow to co-operate of course. Here's hoping for a classic kind of season next time round.

Shiga Kogen is of course relatively cool during the hot summer months and a fine place to visit.

Thanks for reading; see you in autumn!
