Snow is falling in Yuzawa this morning.

After that lovely start to the day yesterday, once again clouds moved in later on and it was snowing by the time Sunday morning came around.

Kagura is reporting 30-40cm of fresh snowfall since yesterday, and I am reporting around 15-20cm in town. Fairly gusty winds means that there's more or less in places so it's difficult to put a number on it. The snow is still coming down now, and the wind is still blowing.

Kagura is also reporting their car park full up at 8:45am, so there's going to be a lot of people up there. Unfortunately strong winds mean that it's only open from the Mitsumta Ropeway to the Kagura Number 1 quad - Tashiro area is closed and so the people who were planning on going there will also be trying to get to Mitsumata.

Naeba seems to be open as planned.

Iwappara are reporting 40cm of fresh snowfall (presumably on upper runs) but also that they now hope to open on Friday 21st.

Yuzawa Nakazato have opened with two lifts moving this morning.

Maiko Snow Resort is open with the Gondola taking you up (and back down) from the upper bowl area where the quad lift is operating.

Yuzawa Kogen are saying that they hope to be open from tomorrow.

I think that's it for the moment - it's often a confusing picture at this time of year when the snow arrives. We always find it curious how some resorts seem almost reluctant to get their 'open' information out there!

Fingers crossed we get more cm today to help these resorts get open. I'll do another round up tomorrow morning.
