I'm sat here in Maruike with one of those strange 'it's sunny but it's snowing' things going on outside. Shadows are being cast and it is quite bright here right at the moment but the mountains have a cloud cover and it does seem to be snowing in all areas of Shiga Kogen this morning. Interesting conditions, and making for a pleasant morning on the slopes I would think.

The local forecast is for cloud and light snow, with more of the same tomorrow but looking like it should clear up by tomorrow afternoon. What we might be left with is clear conditions for Sunday and possibly clearer skies through until around Wednesday at least and while it will likely not be as cold as it is today it should still stay cold enough to keep the snow in decent conditions.

Contrary to expectations yesterday though, I can't see us getting a whole lot today and tonight - though I would gladly report being wrong in tomorrows report!

A bit of news. From Monday 20th February it seems that the Yakebitaiyama No2 Gondola will be rested on weekdays but still be moving on weekends and holidays.

Nighta operations this evening planned at the following resort areas:
