Hello, it is time for a bit of an update.

The initial planned openings of Kumanoyu and Yokoteyama had to be delayed.

Snow machines have been working away and it looks like Yokoteyama is going to be opening a slope from tomorrow, Friday 19th November. It will all be very limited, but if you are super keen on some very early first runs then that is where it will be.

Across the road, Kumanoyu has also been employing snow making machines. However last night it wasn't cold enough for them to be turned on. An opening this weekend is looking unlikely. What they are saying is that unless they are able to make snow tonight, it just won't be possible...

Temperatures look set to drop in the first part of next week, but it seems there's little chance of any natural snow before mid week (next week).

Most of the ski areas of Shiga Kogen plan to be open around the middle of December. Let's hope the season gets off to a good December start.

I will be back in Shiga Kogen at the end of next week and from then on I will be able to post more updates as the season (proper) approaches.
