Morning from Shiga Kogen.

Another 14cm of fresh snowfall to report this morning as snow clouds remain over the region.

Here in the Hasuike area right now there's a cloud/fog making visibility very limited though I see it is better in other areas (looking at webcams). Snow is falling moderately here at the moment and snow is still on the forecast and set to continue throughout the weekend. Looks like we should be getting a fair bit more before Monday rolls around.

If you plan to be here over the weekend - come prepared for full on winter conditions! Snow should be fantastic if you are ok with such conditions.

Question from reader: how can snow be falling and the snow depths still be so low? Ah, a common one! And I don't know the answer. And as I often say, it's almost ok to ignore the official numbers (I feel) as the resorts somehow never seem to want to increase them too much. The number to keep a track of is my observed snowfall each day... that is how much snow is falling at base - and you can probably add to that for higher up too.
