Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

I really enjoyed a half day on the slopes yesterday. Fresh snow.... mmmmmmmm.

It has been a cold early morning and it is currently bright with thin overcast kind of cloud this morning.

When we don't get a refill of fresh snow, cold is good. So finger crossed it keeps cold until we get that next delivery of snow.
