No new snowfall as expected; and also as expected rather mild conditions.

Here's where we stand. The main areas that are open - noted below - are generally separate areas so there's no major course connections yet (apart from the Ichinose-Takamagahara area). We're in need of more snowfall for things to really get going and the whole of Shiga Kogen to open.

When will that be? Well, there's still looking like a chance of rain even up here on Thursday and the freezing level rises to over 3000m and mild conditions continue, but hopefully quickly after that it will be starting to get colder on Friday and fresh snow.

Snow for the weekend! Please.
