Another happy report for you this morning from Shiga Kogen where we have another solid (at least) 25cm of snow since yesterday. I have spoken to a few people from around different areas, with one (the overly-positive one!) saying 45cm. Bottom line - another decent amount of fresh on the ground.

I can't quite believe that a few areas have their official snow depth still stuck on 40cm - Hasuike on 20cm! - but there you go. I suppose it's good that they don't 'over-report', just wish they wouldn't 'under-report' either! I'll try not to go on about that too often, promise. ;)

I'm in a good mood and looking forward to some fine skiing today. It's cold out there, extra layers recommended.

It's getting busy now for New Year. Conditions should be very good so it will be a happy bunch of people who are here. The forecast predicts calmer, clearer and not as cold conditions for over the New Year, and some good looking snowfall around Tuesday.
