Yesterday was a very fine day with blue skies to enjoy and nice cold conditions.

It's warmer this morning with some resorts even reporting temperatures in low positive numbers.

Snow is falling this morning, but it's coming from the south and with the milder temperature is on the heavier and wet side, so not top grade Shiga Kogen quality really. Still, I'll take 4cm of this kind of snow than none (or rain, heaven forbid!). The forecast still tells us to expect heavy snow tonight with it easing off tomorrow morning...

There's a generally foggy kind of feel to things here in Maruike just at the moment and visibility is poor.

This season really is proving to be an odd one by all accounts - in most regions of Japan too, not just this part of northern Nagano. Generally difficult to read and know what's going to happen next.

It will be interesting to see how the rest of the season goes. Obviously we still have less snow than usual so unless that builds up significantly in February, resorts are going to be struggling to remain open as long as they want to this year. Let's hope that February comes out and brings us the goods.
