We have had some generally fine weather over Golden Week for the people turning up for their last slide down the slopes. Mild but not too hot. This morning we have lovely blue skies and the sun is out once again.... it will probably be the warmest day of the week rising into double digit temperatures perhaps at base areas. More sun forecast for over the weekend as well - just a chance of rain on Saturday night perhaps.

One thing worth pointing out again - just a few resort areas left open now in this last stretch. Okushiga Kogen and Kumanoyu are also skiers-only. That means that there's really not much on offer for snowboarders... only parts of Yokoteyama and Shibutoge in the south area of Shiga Kogen. Snowboarders are allowed on the beginner courses 1, 2 and lower intermediate course 4 at Yokoteyama, and all of the small Shibutoge area.

The Skylater moving walkway at Yokoteyama has opened for the spring/summer season allowing tourists (ie. non-skiers) to get to the lift that takes you up to the top of Yokoteyama.

Quick rundown of where we stand regarding resort operations:

Open until 8th May - Okushiga Kogen
Open until 15th May - Kumanoyu
Open until late May - Yokoteyama / Shibutoge

Official resort snow depths as of 6th May 2011 AM:

Yokoteyama:
130cm
Kumanoyu:
105cm
Okushiga Kogen:
150cm
