Hello from Shiga Kogen.

It was cloudy yesterday but we had some rain last night. Glad to report it has stopped and things are looking a bit brighter but there is a chance of more.

It is still keeping pretty cold at the moment - certainly much colder than down below in the valley.

There is even the chance of some snow later tomorrow into Saturday!

More lifts opening up again from the weekend as we enter the 'Golden Week' holiday period.

---

The section of Route 292 road that connects the Yokoteyama area of Shiga Kogen with Kusatsu in Gunma Prefecture is now open - so you can now get to Shiga Kogen via Route 292 in Gunma Prefecture (weather permitting). Be aware that this stretch of road may close if there are icy conditions or snowfall. Please keep that in mind if you plan to use the road and check the latest weather reports.
