It's snowing nicely this morning in Shiga Kogen. Bit of a wind but not enough to affect lift operations as far as I can tell, and more importantly a layer of new snow - not deep but it's coming down and hopefully will be for the day. Due to the snow being blown about, more in some places than others, visibility is generally not so good this morning.

We are expecting the snow to clear up by tomorrow and might get to see the sun. A few days of calmer, clearer weather? That's what the local forecast is telling us at the moment. Further snow due later in the week.

Still bustling here, this being the last bit of new year. Monday should get back to being much quieter.
