Snow is falling this morning and it's all very suitably winter-like.

Snow down to lower valley level this morning with those monkeys at Jigokudani getting snowed on as well. Resorts that are open here in Shiga Kogen are mostly reporting about 10cm of snow, but I reckon we have had more like 15cm so far and it is snowing very nicely at the moment as I write this report at 9:30am.

Visibility poor, a light to moderate wind... and snow. That's about it for now. If the forecast of continued snowfall over the next few days happens, we can surely expect more lifts to be running for the weekend across Shiga Kogen.
