So we got a thin covering of snow yesterday. This morning not much more than a frost to report, and the clouds are clearing in places and it's quite bright. It might turn out to be a fine day today, but it should stay in the negative temperatures.

Snow looks to be expected on Thursday along with temperatures getting real cold around Friday into the weekend.

Lifts and runs open remain the same - very limited and not much snow at all yet, remember. Still early though. :)

One thing I haven't mentioned yet is that from this season the gate system at the ski lifts here in Shiga Kogen has changed. Where they used to be an IC Card there is now a Key Card. A 500 yen returnable deposit is still required. Amongst other things, with this new card you can login online later and see a record of your days skiing - how many lifts you got on, how far you skied or boarded etc. Pretty cool actually. This new system has also allowed Shiga Kogen to offer some new tickets this season including a 2 and 4 hour ticket. See the Shiga Kogen information in the Resort Spotlight section for more details.

Official snow depths [6th Dec 11]:
Takamagahara Mammoth - 20cm
Ichinose Family - 20cm
Kumanoyu - 25cm
Yakebitaiyama - 30cm

Resorts part open [6th Dec 11]:
Takamagahara Mammoth - one triple lift
