Morning.

Wow. Some clearer skies in the morning yesterday but from the afternoon - heavy snowfall.

Very large amounts of snowfall - numbers we don't usually get here in Shiga Kogen.

This morning Kumanoyu are reporting 60cm of fresh snowfall.

Yakebitaiyama are reporting a 50cm.

I have measured 54cm.

But it is windy and the wind is blowing snow around. So it is one of those times where it's really difficult to give a number... can only report what I see.

Bottom line: stormy conditions and heavy snowfall. Quite a few lifts are being affected this morning for those wanting to venture out in this.

We might see a break in the snow tonight and tomorrow morning, but more is forecast to be falling from tomorrow night.
