Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

Today is the official 'opening ceremony' style event at the Yakebitaiyama area. The day started off fine but there has been increasing cloud as the morning progresses and we might even get a little snow falling later on. It looks like we should be expecting some warmer conditions from tomorrow through Tuesday, perhaps followed by some snow mid and later in the week. That would be nice!

So, what ski runs are open? The answer to that question is below - basically small parts of Kumanoyu, Yakebitaiyama, Takamagahara Mammoth and Ichinose Family are now open. It's all still very - very - limited as we wait for some decent snowfall to get things kicking off proper.

I'll post a new report on Monday. I hope you have a good weekend.
