Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

It is a good one too with more fresh snow this morning.

Kumanoyu are reporting 10cm; the neighbouring Yokoteyama and Shibutoge are reporting more than 20cm.

My favourite friend that I sometimes tell you about in these reports - the one that really does like talking big numbers, bless him - says there's over 40cm in wind-blown areas. There's certainly fresh snow around this morning. My measurement is 15cm. I think that is a fair representative number. And as my friend mentioned, there'll be more than that in places; and probably less than that in others.

Still feels windy out there in places but as far as I can tell lifts are operating as planned early morning.

Almost all courses and connections at Shiga Kogen are now open with just a few minor exceptions.
