Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

It's 31st December already, I can't quite believe it. December has been an odd one this year and a very slow start to the season - not just here in Shiga Kogen but in many areas of Japan it seems. Last season was generally heavy snow; this season... how will it turn out? We'll just have to sit tight and see. Here's to January bringing with it much more snow than December!

OK on to this morning. The sun is out, blue skies all around and the sun is shining down on us. No fresh snow to report and generally similar resort operations as yesterday I believe. The only thing I can notice is that while the Higashitateyama 'egg' gondola is moving, the Higashitateyama courses themselves are not.

Next progress will surely be made once we have another decent delivery of fresh. We are hoping for snow later today and overnight into tomorrow, but after that there's not much on the radar into early next week. Areas lower down in the valley are probably going to see warmer conditions in the coming week though up here we should be spared of too much of a warmup.

Have a great New Years Eve!
