Hello from Shiga Kogen.

There's not a cloud to be seen this morning.

Blue skies all around and a strong sun shining down on us. Sunscreen is required if you're going to be zooming down the slopes.

Rather mild too, though compared with down in the valley much cooler/colder. We might even get a bit of snow tomorrow evening where rain is forecast for places lower down than us. Fingers crossed for that.

The forecast also shows some colder conditions returning starting Sunday as well which is good to see. It will be great if we can get some snow along with that.

For today though, a beautiful spring morning to enjoy some riding.
