It has been a snowy day in Shiga Kogen. Blowy winds, poor visibility, cold temperatures.... and snow! That's what we want. I would guess up to around 30cm of snow since it started last night and it is continuing to snow now. It isn't really likely to continue much into tomorrow though and then calmer weather for Saturday before the next snowfall due around Sunday.

It will remain cold though so wrap up well. Right now it is around -10 degrees.

This morning in particular there were some fairly strong winds and that meant that some lifts were late getting started or moving slowly but I think things seem to be operating as normal now.

The official snow depth numbers, apart from Yokoteyama and Kumanoyu haven't really changed since yesterday - don't worry, there has been snow. I'm hoping that the resorts will update those numbers in time for the report tomorrow.

Yokoteyama:
90cm
Shibutoge:
90cm
Kumanoyu:
95cm
Maruike:
