Shiga Kogen Now!
Monday 27th May 2013, 9:10am
The 2012/2013 season at Shiga Kogen is now finished, with the last lifts at Yokoteyama being the last yesterday afternoon. The long season is now over and it's a bit of downtime for many people here now as they properly switch into 'green season'. Which, for Shiga Kogen, mostly means hiking, trekking, leisurely walks taking in the scenery and relaxing in onsen.
Anyway, that's it for the Shiga Kogen Now reports for this season. I hope you enjoyed following the reports over winter and we will of course be back in autumn when temperatures are dropping and the next winter season is approaching.
We have had more clear and sunny weather over the last few days in Yuzawa, and it has been getting hotter too. Up to 28 degrees in Yuzawa yesterday and it felt more humid as well. The more humid conditions are definitely just round the corner now. It is hopefully a while off the worst season of them all (for me anyway).... the rainy season. Hopefully we can enjoy lots of clear days before that lot sets in.
Of course, yesterday was the last day of the season for the Kagura resort and so now there are no ski resorts open in the region. So you can say that the 12/13 season is now officially over.
We will post a few reports every now and again here on Yuzawa Now over the coming months. Regular, followed by daily, reporting will be back after the summer. Read more ...
