Hello from Shiga Kogen.

Well, there's some cloud around this morning - some patches of clearer sky earlier on, but generally now it is not as sunny-fine as we thought it might be. Perhaps it will get to be clearer... after the stormy conditions of yesterday it kind of feels like we deserve a bit of sun!

It's cold too this morning. Snow conditions should be really good.

The snow being reported here is what fell after my report yesterday morning. Wind was really blowing it around yesterday - there's some nice deep conditions to be found.

Take care and have fun.
