Good morning from a snowy Yuzawa.

After another day of mixed and sometimes confusing weather conditions that made the local weather forecasts look like pure guesswork, this morning there is a very nice new layer of fresh snow to report after the snow kicked in properly overnight.

We are measuring 37cm of fresh snowfall here in Yuzawa, 34cm to the north in Shiozawa and here is what the resorts are reporting:

Kagura: 40cm
Kagura (Tashiro): 25cm
Maiko Snow Resort: 30-40cm

So wherever you are in the region this morning, you should be greeted by lots of fresh snow.

It's still snowing and visibility generally limited to poor out there.

The local forecasts says snow for the day today and into tomorrow (though they haven't been right over the last few days). The snow seems set in for the moment though so I would expect more cm through the day today at least.

All resorts look like they should be open as normal today.

Enjoy!

Message from SnowJapan:

The daily reports may appear late tomorrow (Monday 13th) as we need to do some work on the server.
