Good morning.

Fine weather this morning from early on and it looks like the sun is going to be out and it will be a fine day.

There are only a few pockets of snow left now around roads and lower areas and slopes now, but some snow remains in higher areas. At the moment the Number 2 Sky lift at Yokoteyama is operating and the Number 2 course is open. The ski area is reporting a snow depth of 100cm on the open course, which is about 2km in length.

The Shibutoge lift is closed at the moment for maintenance, though it looks like it should be opening again from tomorrow.

Operations are due to start from 6am on Saturday and Sunday.

The section of road from Kusatsu (in Gunma Prefecture) to Shiga Kogen is now normally open for cars during the daytime, in addition to the usual approach on Route 292 from the Nagano side of course.

If you plan on coming, I recommended checking with the ski area and Shiga Kogen beforehand.

Another update next week.

Take care.
