Good morning from Yuzawa.

Clouds moved in over Yuzawa during the day yesterday but it remained generally fine for the most part - with snow starting to fall in places while lifts were still moving.

And this morning we have a nice surprise - a decent amount of snow and (for now) sunny skies.

Here is what is being reported by the ski resorts:

Kagura (main): 50cm
Kagura (Mitsumata): 40cm
Kagura (Tashiro): 40cm
Maiko Snow Resort: 50cm

Big numbers, can't say I was expecting that.

I don't have quite such impressive numbers to report, measuring 24cm; still a very decent number and first tracks should be great this morning.

So right now the sun is out and there are clear skies again over the region. The snow clouds are currently to the north of us and appear to be heading this way and we do have snow forecast for the day so perhaps things are going to change quite quickly this morning. I have to get the report up now though so can't wait to see how things change over the coming hour.

I'll let you know how it went in my report tomorrow morning.
