Hello from a snowy and very cold Shiga Kogen. (Sounds good, right?)

I have measured another 11cm or so on the ground this morning. And it's quality stuff too. With more on the way.

Yes, things are good at the moment and set to get better with that forecast showing a lot of snowfall over at least the next six days. The heaviest apparently is due over the weekend.

As I write my report it is just snowing lightly with a moderate wind. And as I said at the beginning, it's really very cold this morning. Extra layers required.

But those heading out should be rewarded with some great conditions.
