Crazy winds on Monday and still some fairly strong ones blowing about yesterday, but this morning things are calmer, the sun it out and there is a lot of blue sky around. A high of around 21 degrees is forecast.

Shiga Kogen Now!
Wednesday 21st May 2008, 10:00am
Fine weather today after a few of stronger winds and changeable conditions.
Just the Yokoteyama/Shibutoge part of Shiga Kogen open now and we are into the final stretch. Yokoteyama will be open for skiing until this coming Sunday (25th) but over the top at Shibutoge they have announced that they will be continuing on until the week after - 1st June.
3 lifts moving (Yokoteyama No 2 Sky lift, Yokoteyama No 3 Sky lift, Shibutoge No 1 Romance lift) and if you fancy a last slide it's 3000 yen for the day and 2000 yen for half a day.
After that you'll still be able to get a lift up to the top, but won't be able to slide down - just for the views!
A number of other lifts also operate during the summer months in Shiga Kogen - we'll bring you those details next week. Read more ...
