Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

Yesterday the clouds started to part and we were left with a fine afternoon and evening.

And this morning, it's sunny clear skies over the region.

Great weather for skiing and boarding and after the snow we got yesterday conditions should be pretty good too. Especially if it keeps fairly cold.

And for those coming in the next week - there's more snow on the way.

I'm off out there!
