Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

Some annoying rain yesterday but let's quickly get onto the good news - fresh snow!

Resorts around the area are reporting 10cm of fresh; my enthusiastic friend reporting 20cm (his numbers are always bigger than anyone elses!).

I am measuring 12cm and hopefully we will get some more during the day today.

Sun likely tomorrow but later in the week there's some really cold conditions along with heavy snow on the forecast. That is looking very good.

---

More lifts and courses are trying to get open as we play with the snow we got. Most of the ski hills of Shiga Kogen are now at least part open. This morning the Higashitateyama gondola, but the Higashiyama slope is not open yet as there is not enough snow. The Gondola is effectively currently used to get to the (part) open Terakoya and Ichinose areas.

So things remain all a bit dis-connected, but if we get that heavy snow later in the week we should see things opening up pretty quickly.
