Morning from Shiga Kogen.

Blowing winds and snow on this very cold morning. It's affecting some lifts early on and certainly not the kindest of conditions to be outside. We're gnarlier than that though aren't we? ;)

I am measuring 14cm of fresh snow and I note that the Yakebitaiyama resort are are reporting about 20cm and Kumanoyu just 5cm. Regional variances as well as a bit of wind mixed into there explaining that I think. But it is coming down nicely now so there's more on the way during the day today.

The weekend is set to be calmer, clearer and brighter.

And warmer too, particularly on Sunday. We're high up here in Shiga Kogen and so avoid warm ups too much - still keeping fairly cold up here. Let us hope that is the case on Sunday because it looks like it's going to be borderline toasty down in the valleys.
