The snow is coming down nicely in Shiga Kogen as I write this and it is feeling very wintery this morning Perhaps 15cm or so but if it continues like this it should start building up nicely. Let it snow! as they say. There's a fairly moderate wind blowing things about as well but all lifts seem to be operating as normal.

A few people have written in to ask us about the snow this year and why some areas that aren't that far away from here seem to be getting so much more. I wish I knew! (And I wish the snow clouds were giving us as much). Shiga Kogen certainly seems to be getting less than some other parts of northern Nagano but hopefully that will soon change. Like I said before Shiga Kogen isn't known for getting the most snow but the quality of snow that we do get is usually very high. We are certainly still in need of more snow as we are not yet deep, but the fact is that most areas and lifts are now open. Just get out there and enjoy what we have I say. I certainly had a fine day yesterday spending most of it over at Yakebitaiyama and Okushiga Kogen.

Looking at the forecast, the snow might continue into tomorrow and after that conditions may clear up for a day or two - we might even see the sun. It should always be staying very cold though so the snow should keep in good condition.

Nighta operations this evening planned at the following resort area:

- Ichinose Family
- Ichinose Diamond
