Once the wind eases off this morning and some of the lifts that are stopped at the moment get going again, it will be excellent conditions again.

More fresh snow this morning and strong winds causing problems with quite a few lifts around the areas. Wind has also been blowing the snow around overnight and this morning and so proving difficult to put a number on it. A lot. (Number may be adjusted after further investigations!)

Things should be calmer and clearer tomorrow --- before more snow due Sunday night into early week.

What a fine season it is turning out to be (so far). In terms of us getting snow here in Shiga Kogen.

I like it.
