Things really changed quite dramatically yesterday.

There were clear blue skies over Yuzawa for a good part of the morning but quite quickly around lunchtime the grey skies moved in and it was snowing quite heavily by the early afternoon. By the time 5pm had come, there was about 30cm of snow to move from the top of the car!

Overnight the snow has continued falling and there was another 30cm or so to move giving us at least 50-60cm of fresh snow since yesterday afternoon. And that's in the town areas. The mountains will have got more no doubt and I can see that Kagura is this morning reporting 40-60cm of snow overnight. Nice.

The temperature out there is -2 degrees at the moment and it will be a rather cold -10 degrees or so up on the mountainsides. It is snowing fairly heavily still and poor visibility even here in town. But who cares when there's all this deep powder to play in.

Conditions out there will be of course excellent at the moment. If you don't mind the blizzard like conditions and fairly strong winds, today will be brilliant. If you are looking for a break in the snow and finer weather then there is a chance of that tomorrow, but it won't last long as we have more snow lined up from Saturday through into next week.

I always knew Yuzawa would pull through and it has. The snow is piling up on the side of the roads, there's more than a metre of snow on the top of some buildings and the trees are looking tired under the sheer weight of snow.

The below official snow depth numbers and those in the table above will be updated later on today when the numbers are in....
