The clouds cleared up during the afternoon yesterday turning into a fine day to be out sliding down the slopes. And this morning it is clear skies and sunshine above Shiga Kogen. Another cold start but it should be warming up with the sun.

There is a lot of sunshine on the forecast for the coming week along with some rather warm temps too.

My friend was mentioning that there are now only 3 weeks left with all of the Shiga Kogen areas open. Of course there are some areas that are open until Golden Week in early May and even beyond that. But still...

I will bring you more details on planned closing dates sometime soon.
