It is a cold morning in Shiga Kogen and I am happy to be able to report 9cm of fresh snowfall on the ground outside my place this morning (since my report yesterday).

Things are calmer today and there was a lot of cloud around early on but it has been clearing over the last hour or so and it's actually quite bright at the moment. Perhaps we'll get the sun as well later.

Snow is forecast again for tonight though and there's snow forecast over the weekend as well. It all counts now and a few decent snowfalls will really let more lifts and courses start opening up more.

This morning it looks like the Number 3 pair lift at Takamagahara Mammoth and the Number 4 pair lift at Kumanoyu have also started their long season!

Until tomorrow...
