Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

As expected it has been a few days of settled, warm and sunny conditions. Still a bit chilly in an early morning though.

A few extra lifts plan to be open for the weekend, noted below. It looks like the clear and sunny run will end over the weekend though with the chance of some rain (even snow higher up) particularly as we get into Sunday. More like just cloudy tomorrow perhaps...

Have a good weekend and I'll be back early next week.

----

The section of road connecting the southern area of Shiga Kogen (from Yokoteyama onwards) with Gunma Prefecture is going to re-open for the 'green season' this morning. From 10am.

So from today you can approach Shiga Kogen using Route 292 from both directions - Nagano/Nakano/Yamanouchi and also from Kusatsu in Gunma.
