Just a dusting of snow overnight but clear skies this morning and the sun out from early on.

Very cold though which is good and should keep conditions really good for today.

Over the coming week the wider region is expecting a lot of sunshine and warmer temperatures - bring sunscreen as that spring sunshine can get strong. Temperatures going to start exploring positive numbers and down in the valley it should get especially warm.

Today sees the opening of the Hokuriku Shinkansen line from Nagano, the nearest station to Shiga Kogen being Iiyama. While it may not directly affect Shiga Kogen that much, the Iiyama station will certainly make this region - including Madarao, Myoko, Nozawa etc - seem easier to get to. There are different opinions as to how much of an affect it will have, I suppose we'll just have to see how things turn out.
