Good morning from Shiga Kogen, enjoying a real blast of winter at the moment.

Big flakes of snow falling this morning and it has been building up quickly. It is one of those days when you ask different people and they'll all give you different opinions of how much snow we have got. Strong winds blowing the light snow around doesn't help in that respect!

My measurement is 23cm, though I am hearing anything from 15cm-40cm from different people. Bottom line - a nice new layer and it is still snowing so we are getting more by the hour.

I wouldn't be surprised if some lift operations are affected by these conditions though after just checking places seem to be open as planned for the moment. The only specific things I can confirm at the time of writing is that the Number 2 Gondola at Yakebitaiyama and the Gondola and a few lifts at Okushiga Kogen are affected by the wind and on hold.

Some of the official snow depths are... interesting. (For their comical value! Come on guys, let's try to keep them updated!)

:)

Full on winter and it should be with us for at least another day or more.
