And a nice new layer of snow we seem to have this morning. There's fresh snow on the trees and more importantly on the slopes and this morning feels more like January than late March. A good thing of course. So people coming to Shiga Kogen will no doubt have a fine time playing in the fresh snow that has arrived, though don't expect views as visibility is generally really poor this morning as snow continues to fall and the mountains are shrouded in cloud/fog.

Snow should be with us all today and perhaps a bit tomorrow too. Clearer skies likely early in the week.

Below the snow depths is a reminder of planned resort operations over the next few days. All are subject to change in the current circumstances and so please do check before making travel plans to get the latest from the resorts.
