It's snow storm time in Shiga Kogen this morning.

Heavy snow, blowing winds and limited visibility.

Okushiga Kogen is reporting a whopping 50-60cm of fresh snowfall.

I am measuring an average of 39cm from my three points.

Strong winds are blowing it all around, so it is one of those days when measuring is... difficult.

Information is limited early on but expect some disruption to the operation of some lifts. Check with the resorts if you plan on being out.

I suspect many will be sitting it out and checking out an onsen, just like the monkeys.
