Nice weather yesterday, snow overnight and it seems the clouds are clearing again this morning with some blue sky opening up in places and the sun shining through. Still cloudy and poorer visibility in some places, but maybe it's going to start clearing in all of the areas. That is what the forecast tells us is set to happen anyway, followed by sun tomorrow and Monday.

There's a fairly strong northerly wind though this morning.

The wind has been affecting parts of Yokoteyama and Yakebitaiyama (Number 2 Gondola) - the Moving Sidewalk at Ichinose Diamond is not moving as well by the looks.

It's another very cold morning in Shiga Kogen.
