This morning as I write this it's an interesting mix of light snowfall and sunshine.

Just a slight dusting of snow overnight and I doubt we will see much added to that today. Looks like there's lots of clear skies in surrounding areas this morning, perhaps we will also see further clearing of clouds as the day goes on.

Decent snowfall is still on the forecast for Saturday with snow expected Friday and Sunday as well, so hopefully we'll get a lot of fresh for/over the weekend.

I have added information below about the floodlit night skiing (nighta) that is available at resort areas around Shiga Kogen.
