Good morning from Shiga Kogen... and the last part of the season.

With some resorts closing for the season at the end of yesterday, we are now down to limited operations -- though a large part remains open.

It is a grey and overcast start to the day here and some forecasts talk of the chance of some rain too. The coming week seems to be a mix of fine weather with rain at times... and snow is there on the forecast for around Saturday!

I have (below) updated the information for planned lift operations around Shiga Kogen.

This report will be updated a few times a week until the end of the season.
