Stunning morning here in Shiga Kogen.

The sun is out.

There's blue skies all around.

And we have very large amounts of top quality fresh snow everywhere.

It sounds almost perfect doesn't it?

And it may very well be today. Certainly up there with one of the best.

I do hope some of you can get here to enjoy Shiga Kogen at its best...

(Forecast has a bit of snow tonight then more going into Saturday and then entering the new week. Regular top-ups on the way!)
