Hello from Shiga Kogen where... it's snowing and it is cold.

I have seen what would be different numbers in areas, but I have measured 22cm.

Yakebitaiyama are actually reporting 35cm (and my enthusiastic friend is boasting of over 40cm).

Bottom line - a good new layer of snow which will really freshen things up.

Perhaps more during the day but it will have cleared up by tomorrow.

All areas and connections at Shiga Kogen remain open.
