Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

26cm of fresh snow on the ground to report this morning with heavy snow still falling and forecast to continue doing so for the next few days. The forecast is actually look good beyond that as well so we should be getting regular (and considerable) top-ups over the coming days.

Couldn't ask for much more than that!

Care needed on the roads this morning. Snow on the road and heavy snow falling with poor visibility makes for pretty hairy conditions. Just now there's a slow stream of cars coming up on Route 292, it looks pretty slow moving.

A fair few people will surely be sitting out these heavy snow conditions, but snow conditions should be excellent and once the storm passes we'll be on for prime time.

Fantastic.
