Shiga Kogen Now!

Thursday 15th November 2018, 9:32am
Weather conditions: Cloud, some blue sky
New snowfall: 1cm
Snow depth: --
Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

As with many regions of Japan, it has been relatively mild over the last few weeks.

The good news is that this morning feels rather cold and there is some light snow falling and a thin layer of snow on the ground in places. I was just over in Ichinose and feel confident that I can 'award' the reports 1cm. Right now the sun is out.

The Kumanoyu resort area has been trying to pump out some 'snow' from the snow-making machines, but they have this morning said that they have stopped due to temperature. It is looking like their hoped-for planned opening this Saturday (17th November) is going to be very (very) difficult. I wouldn't expect it.

The forecast for later on next week looks like it might be quite encouraging. I'll be with you again next week!
