Cooler weather it certainly was over the weekend - both on Saturday and Sunday it got really cool and only just managing to rise above 10 degrees, in a rather large contrast with the week previously.
Today the sun is out but there is a lot of cloud cover, with more and more blue sky appearing as the morning progresses. It looks like it should reach around 18 degrees early this afternoon.
More fine weather is forecast for tomorrow and then cloud/rain for Wednesday and Thursday. Read more ...
Shiga Kogen Now!

Kumanoyu had it's last day of the season yesterday, so from today we are left with just a small part of Yokoteyama and Shibutoge open, and they still hope to be able to run the three lifts that are open for skiing until 25th May.
The Yokoteyama No 2 Skylift, Yokoteyama No 3 Skylift and Shibutoge No 1 Romance lifts are the ones operating. The elevator lift at Yokoteyama that is used for sightseeing (taking you to the lifts from the roadside) is also open now - so you can go up there even if you aren't skiing.
It is a fine morning but fairly cold after a cold weekend.
