As I write this, Route 292 is being prepared for it's opening this morning at 10am. It was supposed to open on Wednesday but the snow prevented that. It's all go this morning though and in just a few minutes you will be able to drive between Shiga Kogen and Kusatsu Onsen in Gunma. This makes Shiga Kogen easily accessible for a whole lot of people on the Gunma side of the mountain of course.

It's a cloudy morning here, though quite bright and I wouldn't be surprised to see the sun make an appearance. Later on though we have rain/snow lined up. Snow please. All going to depend on the temperature, and right now it is quite mild.

Tomorrow is the weekend of course and so some more lifts opening up. Details on lift operations below. Cloud with a chance of snow lined up for tomorrow.
