It is a calm morning here in Shiga Kogen.

Lots of cloud around though in the last hour or two there are more breaks in the cloud and some blue sky and periods of sunshine as well. Feels like it may well continue clearing like that during the day.

By the time I post my report tomorrow snow should be falling again and we are expecting a few days of snowfall. It could be good.

Actually I was looking back at the numbers from the past few seasons and we did rather well up here in Shiga Kogen - compared with last season and compared with lots of other regions this season, which so far again seem to generally be 'disappointing' so far in terms of snowfall.

Shiga Kogen has an advantage over lots of ski resorts in Japan of the 'base' areas being at high altitudes, so there's none of the town level snow disappearing thing going on, and temperatures remain relatively low even in mild runs of weather.

We still need and want more snowfall of course - we never stop wanting more snowfall - but I hope we will see a great January and February. And of course I'd also like to see decent snowfall everywhere else too.

See you tomorrow.
