Welcome to December! Hopefully sooner rather than later this month we will be able to report huge dumps of powder snow arriving in Shiga Kogen, but that's not quite yet unfortunately.

Light snow is falling this morning in the region giving a slight dusting to places that had previously dried up and it is noticeably colder as well this morning. Over the next few days the forecast is mixed - but generall cloud with rain and/or snow. It's all going to be about the temperatures and Saturday morning in particular looks quite mild. After that temperatures look set to take another dip back down into negative numbers into next week. No huge dump on the weekly forecast horizon just perhaps a few cm here and there if we get any.

Despite the lack of snow, it looks like Takamagahara have got their triple lift operating and also the Ichinose Family area have got their number 2 pair lift moving with a 370m course open this morning. Both are reporting 20cm of snow on the short open slopes. Kumanoyu remains open with one pair lift moving and reporting 15cm.

Resorts part open [1st Dec 11]:
Takamagahara Mammoth - one triple lift
Ichinose Family - one pair lift
Kumanoyu - one pair lift
