It's a very good morning from Yuzawa, where it has been snowing like how we expect it to snow here. The most impressive snow of the season I would say with it really coming down hard at times last night and overnight leaving us with over 30cm at base and resorts reporting that much and more - the most being reported by Kagura as you might expect, with 30-60cm of fresh up there.

Conditions will surely have been transformed everywhere though since this snow started with that very nice new thick layer. It's still snowing now and while it is expected to ease off later on, there should be more cm to report tomorrow.

Strong winds look like they are affecting operations at Kagura this morning so expect to see some lifts not moving there.

The sun is expected tomorrow as well making it very probably a choice day to be here.

Should be excellent!

Looking beyond tomorrow there's still a warm up along with wet weather forecast for the weekend unfortunately, which would be a really great shame to spoil all this snow we have just got - not to mention the World Cup event that is being held over at Naeba - so we can only hope for that not to happen, or at least damage limitation.

For now though time to have some fun in the fresh snow.
