It is a cold and windy morning here in Shiga Kogen. And snowy too, and it's coming down quite heavily now - though rather small snowflakes rather than that big fluffy kind - though hopefully it will be bringing us new cm of the lovely stuff by the time it's done.

It's windblown as I said so difficult to put a number on it but I think 20cm is probably representative (the official Shiga Kogen lift organisation is going with 25cm this morning). May adjust and update that tomorrow when things are clearer...

Clearer skies are forecast for tomorrow and perhaps the day after, so it's today that we need the delivery.

If you can put up with the conditions today, should be fun out there!

Some lifts may be affected by wind this morning...
