Welcome to a snowy morning in Shiga Kogen. It's coming down and is set to for the next few days as well. This will really get the resort opening up proper and it really feels winter-like this morning.

There has probably been around 10-15cm of new snow since the last report, though please note that won't always be reflected in the "official" snow depths that the resorts posts. There's a few reasons for that, one being that new snow will get compacted down and not simply be added to the previous snow depth number. But be assured, 15cm there is!

As the snow arrives more and more of Shiga Kogen will gradually open up so expect more to be open by tomorrow morning.

Yakebitaiyama is planning to have their No 2 Gondola running from 12 noon today and with it the Panorama Out Course will open up as well.

Oh yes one more thing - it's cold out there and the snow that we have is really good condition. If you want to brave the cold and wintery weather tomorrow you should find some very fine conditions out there. Remember though that the snow isn't really deep yet, so always the chance of meeting something popping up out of the snow that is usually buried deep. Take care!

Resorts part open at the moment:

1 triple lift

Ichinose Family:
1 pair lift

Ichinose Diamond:
1 triple lift

1 quad lift and 1 pair lift

Okushiga Kogen:
