Good afternoon and the sun has again done some shining down on us again here in Shiga Kogen - at the moment anyway. Here in Maruike anyway as there is quite a bit of grey cloud up there today, but only light snow falling early on and things clearing. It has been a kind of moody, cloudy, but at times bright day.... hmm, don't know if I explain that well. Perhaps changeable weather conditions covers it!

Still no specific news about the coming weekend with lifts, but I would hope more will open. Runs do seem to be skiable for sure, but not yet open. Perhaps we will see more for the weekend.

Looking to the weekend, we should be seeing fairly clear conditions and going into next week as well. The next few days look set to be warmer than this week as well actually, so a bit of a mild spell coming up. Tomorrow the sun should be out. It's Shiga Kogen though and we are high up and so even when it's mild, it'll hopefully stay below or close to zero.
