Decent visibility here in the Maruike area of Shiga Kogen this morning but small snowflakes are coming down quite quickly.

It is a very cold morning here and feels like mid-winter, though not as much snow as hoped for this morning.

Still, with it falling and expected to get heavier during the day today, I hope that I can report more in the report tomorrow.

More runs opening up with some resorts waiting for another week to make their debut this season. We're that one decent delivery of snow away though really...
