Hello from Shiga Kogen.

The sun is out this morning.

I'm still looking at the forecast and excited at the prospect of some fresh snow in the coming week.

---

Today I am starting to post the 'planned closing dates' information for resorts and I'll keep this on the report every day. Basically:

- all ski areas in Shiga Kogen plan to be at least part open until the end of March;
- a bunch of resorts will be open on specific dates (usually weekends and Golden Week) once we get into April;
- the remaining resorts will be open daily until 6th May and beyond that (they will close when there's not enough snow left to ski or board!)

Once we get to the end of March, I will add specific lift operation plans for the ski resorts that remain open during the months of April and May.
