Hello and welcome back to Shiga Kogen Now. I'll be back here this coming season bringing you daily updates from Shiga Kogen - and hopefully it will be another fine season.

We have enjoyed some beautiful autumn scenery - that is nothing new of course but this year things seemed to turn a little earlier than usual. The colours are faded now as winter is just around the corner with both people and wildlife busy preparing themselves for the upcoming cold.

We had a bit of wet snow falling here last Tuesday for a short while, and a few cold days. The thermometer was down to -4 degrees on Thursday early morning. It has been warmer since then and this morning feels relatively mild with a temperature of around 10 degrees.

The forecast is for another dip in temperatures starting tomorrow but not much in terms of the chance of snow.

One of the signs of winter just around the corner is the closing of the section of Route 292 that connects the southern area of Shiga Kogen with Gunma Prefecture. This year that road will close at 1pm on Monday 16th November (and be closed until 22nd April 2016). The mountain road connecting Okushiga Kogen with Nozawa Onsen is already closed.

So when will the lifts open? Well, Shiga Kogen as a whole is putting it out there that lifts plan to start any time from Saturday 14th November! Of course the start of the season is always very limited, but with no snow forecast before then such a date seems very unlikely!

I'll be updating the report a few times a week now with the latests until we get going proper for the season.
