Morning from Shiga Kogen.

It is definitely colder. And there is a dusting of snow on the ground. I am going to be rather generous by adding 1cm to the report (but I will take into account the few added mm next time).

Kumanoyu are back open again from this morning.

And the forecast is good for snow with a decent amount due starting tonight and into the coming week.

Could this be the turning point? I think we all hope so!
