Good morning from a snowy Yuzawa.

Yesterday was a generally cloudy day. At times you could just above make out the sun from behind the cover of cloud, but cloudy it remained.

Then the snow started falling and overnight we have a fresh blanket of fresh:

Kagura (main area): 20cm
Kagura (Mitsumata): 15cm
Kagura (Tashiro): 10cm
Maiko Snow Resort: 10cm

Our measurement for the day down in town is also 10cm.

It is still snowing and probably will be for all today and tomorrow too. (Is that a chance of sunshine tomorrow morning I see on some forecasts?)

The Tashiro area of Kagura is closed today, as are some of the lifts up at the main area of Kagura - the resort is open from Mitsumata Ropeway to the Kagura Number 1 pair lift.

The South Area section of GALA Yuzawa is not open yet this morning and they are going to keep an eye on the conditions regarding that. Other lifts may be running at slower than usual speeds but the resort is open.

Thank you to everyone who entered the lift ticket giveaway. Winners will be notified later today!
