It's stormy again here in Shiga Kogen with more snow once again. Strong winds have blown it all around but on average I would say about 20cm of fresh.... and it is really coming down now as I sit here writing this. Great stuff. Not the kind of weather where I want to venture out on the slopes as it's heavy snow and gusty winds. It does look like some lifts are open with others on hold due to the conditions.

The last three days though has seen lots of snow fall and was just what we all needed. More numbers expected to add up before tomorrow and then regular snow through until Sunday when heavy snow is again on the forecast.

This is more like it!

Once the storm clears conditions should be really great.
