Things are much calmer in Shiga Kogen this morning. It's a cloudy start but rather mild and even up at Yokoteyama it is above zero this morning. Looks like temperatures are all above zero across the region.

The sleet/snow of yesterday was all blown about by the wind and so not really much difference in terms of snow depth this morning. Okushiga Kogen haven't been able to open as they had hoped and the lift operations this morning in the area are as follows:

Takamagahara Mammoth - No 2 triple lift, No 3 pair lift
Ichinose Family - No 2 pair lift
Yakebitaiyama - No 2 quad and No 4 pair lift
Kumanoyu - No 2 paid, No 3 quad lift
Yakebitaiyama - No 1, 2, 5 and 6 lifts

Not the best snow conditions of course and still very thin on the ground, but people out there having their fun first runs of the season.

Perhaps we can expect some light snow this evening and then things look more encouraging in the coming week with snow on most days. How much? Hopefully a decent amount but we'll just have to wait and see.
