Welcome back to the 'Yuzawa Now' reports on SnowJapan.

After a predictably hot summer, temperatures have really dropped over the last few weeks and it is positively chilly at times now - including early this morning, when temperatures were down to around 4C in town.

The first snow of the season has also been spotted... first up on the higher areas of Kagura a number of days ago, and yesterday we could see snow on the top areas of the Makihata and Hakkai-san mountains in Minamiuonuma. It will be a while before the snow reaches down here to town and before most ski resorts open of course, but it always great to see the first snow of the season.

Let's hope we are going to be treated to a season of heavy (but light!) and consistent snow this coming season.

This morning there are clear blue skies all around. It really is a beautiful morning.

The first ski lifts to move will of course be at the Kagura resort (via Mitsumata Ropeway), which plans to open this year on Saturday 19th November. So if all things go well, we are only two weeks from the start of the season!

Most of the resorts in Yuzawa open in the second half of December. We will bring you details on the planned opening dates soon.

Another report next week.

There is a lot of new information and (we hope) interesting data to enjoy. Keep an eye on the News section of the site for updates.
