There is a lot of cloud above Yuzawa this morning.

Right now nothing is falling from those skies but some forecasts have some rain due today. Let's hope it holds off. Just to the north of central Yuzawa the sun is peeking through the clouds in Minamiuonuma and there's even a bit of blue sky starting to appear.

It is remaining mild - currently 9C in town as we approach 9am - and so there's little hope of snow at the moment.

Things still look better from tomorrow though with colder conditions and snow due at town level and of course more at higher elevations. After that for the rest of the week it's a mix up of rain/snow low/high with a lot of course depending on how cold it can remain.

Up at Kagura it looks like the Panorama course is closed now so we're back to the main course, Technical Course, Giant Course and Gondola Course.

Snow please!

The list of resorts and planned opening dates has been updated below. Links to information on each of the resorts in the area can be found on the right hand side of the page. The official snow depth data is scheduled to begin in a week or two once the season gets going.
