Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

Mid-winter! I have had to shovel snow this morning. It really does feel like January again.

Kumanoyu are reporting 30cm of fresh 'since yesterday' (vague timing) and Yakebitaiyama are reporting 40cm overnight.

I have measured 34cm, though it is more and less in places due to wind.

And it is really coming down now with a moderate wind blowing it about too and limited visibility. The wind might affect some lifts (I am hearing that the link between Okushiga Kogen and Yakebitaiyama is closed, for example).

This blast of winter is not due to last long with a return to milder conditions tomorrow with the sun warming things up.

It should be an excellent weekend though.
