Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

Well, it's a lovely morning. But we could do with snow rather than sunshine right now. With warm conditions over the last few days, Kumanoyu have been struggling to get their snow making machines going so the course that remains open is --- not ideal. Snow is thin on the ground.

So, we wait for snow.

Over the coming week temps look set to dip (the next few days) before rising once again early week; it doesn't look like I am going to be able to bring you much snow news before next week. Having said that there might be some night - if there's any new cm on the ground, I'll post another report.
