Another cold and frosty start to the day, with more blue skies above with the sun out and shining down on us.

A beautiful morning, even if we would prefer a snowstorm blizzard right now!

One of the main fine things about Shiga Kogen is that due to the area being so high up we can often avoid the warmth when things warm up down below in the valleys. This is of course good for keeping the snow conditions decent even if there isn't as much.

Having said that, it is going to warm up again during the day today, hopefully not too much.

Hoping for snow later tomorrow into Friday, but it might be rain. We'll just have to see how that turns out.
