So we got some more snow yesterday. Not huge amounts but gradually it is building up.

This morning the sun is actually out. Lots of blue sky as well, though cloud hanging on and the forecasts tell us to expect snow later on today and over the weekend.

A lot of snow is still needed to get Shiga Kogen fully open. The news I have this morning is that Okushiga Kogen are open for the first time this morning with their Number 2 pair lift.

Hopefully there might be more news to share tomorrow morning.
