Cloudy early on this morning, but there are some breaks in the cloud at the moment - more so in some areas than others.

Still, the storm we are promised is still due to hit the region later today, so we can hope for a fresh layer of snow by tomorrow morning.

Depending on the weather, some New Year celebrations may need to be cancelled. That would be a shame, but I think for most of us the priority right now is very much... snow!!

Thanks for reading up until now. But I certainly hope to be able to be the bearer of much more exciting news next month.

---

Most areas of Shiga Kogen are now at least part open though all areas are not all inter-connected open just yet.
