It's a fine early morning here in Shiga Kogen.

First day of the 3-day long weekend (with Monday as a national holiday) and it is very probably going to be busy on the slopes - the forecast fine weather for the weekend will encourage more people to turn up.

No fresh to report but it is keeping cold so early morning conditions should be very nice. In fact, I feel somewhat duty bound to go and check it all out for myself. The things I have to do...!

See you tomorrow.
