Morning from Shiga Kogen.

Glad to report it is colder again this morning with a fresh delivery of nice snow too. Perhaps not enough to cover some harder icy conditions but hopefully we might get some more during the day today.

Kumanoyu are reporting 5cm of fresh; Yakebitaiyama are reporting 15cm. I am measuring in the middle of that.

I expect things to be quieter from today as people make their way back after the New Year.

Heavy snow set to be over the region later on Tuesday. Let's hope it delivers.
