Good morning from Shiga Kogen - I wasn't planning on a report this morning but there is snow to report so here I am.

Kumanoyu are reporting 10cm. Yakebitaiyama are reporting 5-10cm.

It was really coming down when I was just over at Okushiga Kogen. It feels like winter again!

Bit windy too which might affect lifts.

We should be seeing clearer conditions from tomorrow.
