Morning from Shiga Kogen.

Snow has been falling (and still is) but right now and there's actually quite a bit of blue sky appearing over Maruike. I wonder if that will remain, clear up, or just be a temporary lull. I get the feeling it might clear a bit (total guess).

Still, it is keeping very cold and there's another layer of fresh snow, and it's top quality light snow too. Excellent conditions.

Good chance of some sun tomorrow and then the next snow on Saturday. Early week looks like sun and milder conditions are likely.

Some ski areas will be handing out some chocolate this morning. Valentines Day, you see.
