Lots of changes in weather conditions yesterday but by the evening the snow was back and it has been falling since by the looks of things. I had to move 25+ cm off the car this morning, so we can expect more than that on the slopes.

And indeed Kagura is reporting another dump of 50-60cm of new snowfall overnight. How do you like that then? (Don't ask me why the official snow depth hasn't increased at all... that's a different story altogether!)

Bottom line though is that we have had a good new covering of snow just in time for the weekend and conditions out there should once again by very fine.

It is still snowing - lightly - at the moment and is likely to continue for the day and perhaps even into tomorrow. So generally light and snow and cloud is how the weekend should pan out. Right now it is -2 degrees in Yuzawa.

For those looking for clear and sunny conditions, your wish should be granted as we get into next week as we have a run of milder and clearer conditions lined up from Monday onwards.

Have a great weekend wherever you are.

9pm update

Just a quick update for the evening.

Actually this is more a "Minamiuonuma Now" report as I have been here since this morning and have come back from outside clearing the snow off my car... there was about 15-20cm or so of snow on the top there and that's new since early this morning. There have been a few short breaks in the snowfall from time to time here but it has generally just been snowing all day. It's not that cold though - the roads are more wet than icy this evening and the snow isn't the driest variety. But with colder temperatures overnight and some more snow forecast to continue into tomorrow it should be really great conditions out there once again tomorrow for those lucky enough to be able to get out there.

Just to be clear and for those who may not know, Minamiuonuma is right next to Yuzawa - just to the north and home to such resorts as Ishiuchi Maruyama, Centleisure Maiko, Joetsu Kokusai and Hakkaisan.
