About 15cm of fresh snowfall outside my place here in Shiga Kogen this morning. There's snow on the roads and limited visibility.

14 of the 19 areas of Shiga Kogen are now open with Shibutoge and Ichinose Yamanokami joining the party. The whole of Shiga Kogen is by no means fully open yet along with all of the connecting courses, but it feels like we are on the way to getting there. The more snow the better, of course. But if you are out there remember that it's still not deep and there's still bushes and things sticking up out of the snow. Care is needed especially on a day like today when visibility is very limited.

Snowfall is forecast to continue for today along with some strong winds at times. Tomorrow might start off with clearer skies, but more snow is forecast to be falling by tomorrow night and into Tuesday.

It's cold today with the wind making it feel even colder. Face masks recommended!

It should be fun out there today though.
