Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

Some more snow since my report yesterday during the daytime but this morning we have clearer skies and it is calmer, though it didn't get really windy yesterday (or not as much as we were warned it might).

But hold on a sec, it's snowing over at Okushiga Kogen.

So yes mixed conditions early on but likely to be on the clearer side with the snow easing off.

Whatever, wrapped up, it should be a really good morning out there.

Questions answered: Is Kumanoyu always blue? A: Not always. But sometimes it sure looks very blue!!

---

All areas and connections at Shiga Kogen are now open (with just a few minor exceptions).
