Things have brightened up the last few days and this morning is also a mild, warm and sunny one. Blue skies up there and a real spring feel to the air. A feelgood one. It's always sad when winter is over, but spring also has it's appeal - as do all the seasons in Shiga Kogen for that matter.

Looks like tomorrow will be more cloudy followed by clearer skies once again on Saturday when once again a few more lifts plan to be open for the weekend.

Just a reminder that the road connecting Shiga Kogen with Kusatsu in Gunma is still closed and will be until the 26th April. They have been hard at work moving snow up there the last few weeks in preparation for a planned re-opening of the road on 26th April. When it opens you will be able to get to Shiga Kogen via Gunma. More on that a bit nearer the time.
