We had some strong winds overnight, waking me up actually at one point, and while it is still windy it seems to have calmed down somewhat this morning. Winds do not seem to be affecting resort operations around Shiga Kogen - but expect some exposed lifts to move slower than usual if the winds pick up again.

Right now it is snowing across Shiga Kogen and coming down quite heavily at the moment. The winds last night no doubt blew around the snow that was falling yesterday and overnight and so it is difficult to estimate how much there was... perhaps 15cm or so, though the snow depths at the resorts aren't changing.

Visibility on the slopes not too bad considering it is snowing quite hard - it's not total whiteout - but there's not much in the way of 'scenery' on show today!

Tomorrow should bring more snow and then after that it looks like we have a chance of cleared conditions.

Nighta operations this evening planned at the following resort areas:

- Ichinose Family
