The snow is continuing this morning and perhaps 10cm of so to move from the top of the car this morning.

Some blustery winds in the Ichinose area this morning and currently it is snowing lightly though we have heavier snow forecast for later today and also into tomorrow.

A few people have asked about the snow depth numbers we post in this report below and why they aren't changing that much when there seems to be plenty of new snow. Well, they are the official numbers that the resorts announce and personally I think they seem too low especially after experiencing how much snow has fallen and being out there on the slopes as well. But for whatever reason, they are the numbers. Keep an eye on how much I mention has fallen each day in each report to get an idea of what new snow is falling in the area.... of course Shiga Kogen is a large wide region and I try to comment generally though at times there are very different conditions in say Okushiga Kogen and Yokoteyama which are at both extreme ends of the region.

Nighta this evening planned at the following resort areas:

- Ichinose Family
- Ichinose Diamond

140cm
