Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

Well, winter really isn't going quietly this season. More snow and cold. It sure doesn't feel like we are getting close to the middle of April.

This morning Kumanoyu are reporting 5cm of snow. Adding that to what we say yesterday and I am able to add 9cm to the report (since last report).

It is still snowing with less wind it seems than earlier on.

The roads have a cover of snow but it's not thick - still, I think lots of people will be glad if they kept their winter tyres on (and regretting it if they had swapped them over!)

More lifts to open for the weekend; plans are as below.
