It's another relatively mild morning in Shiga Kogen.

No new snowfall and blue skies above, the sun shining through my window right now.

Cautiously optimistic though that from tonight and perhaps until early Friday, snow is on the way. And you never know, we might get some decent snowfall as well. Nature will have the last say, and I'll report on that every morning!

I'm looking forward to the mid-winter like cold that is forecast for Thursday as well as the snow.

A good idea perhaps to keep this news here for a few days:

Until now, the Okushiga Kogen and Kumanoyu areas of Shiga Kogen were 'skiers-only' areas -- but from this season you can also snowboard at both of these areas.
