Conditions changing before our eyes here as there are some breaks in the snow clouds and blue sky starting to open up. The forecast for the day is continued snow so this might just be temporary but the mountains are looking fantastic this morning.

Why? All that fresh new snow!

Yes, really great news this morning as we had snow falling for most of yesterday and overnight.

Get this, Kagura report 50cm of fresh. Naeba says 20-30cm. Maiko Snow Resort is also reporting a whopping 50cm! GALA Yuzawa have added 50cm this morning to their official snow depth. It would be great if more resorts gave up the daily 'new snowfall' information rather than just (sometimes) adjust the snow depth - Kagura, for example, have been unchanged on 330cm for quite a long time now - but...

There isn't quite as much as 50cm on the top of my car but still a decent delivery.

How things can change in just a few days. Obviously I haven't been out on the snow yet but I am guessing it will be fantastic conditions this morning.

So, current blue sky above parts of Yuzawa aside, snow is forecast for the day and tomorrow too. Not much wind this morning and all resorts look set to open as normal.

It should be an excellent weekend. There is a chance of stronger winds in higher places, so I advise if you plan to go to Kagura to check their website early morning.

Come prepared for mid-winter like conditions.

Very happy.
