Good news this morning with a lot of snowfall to report. Perhaps around 20cm on average around town areas and more on the mountains with resorts reporting between 30cm and up to 50cm (Kagura) of new snowfall.

It is a cold start to the day as well, and likely won't warm up much either. -5C. Moderate to strong winds are causing a few problems for a few resorts. At the time of writing the Tashiro part of Kagura is closed and that resort only open from the Mitsumata Ropeway to the Kagura No1 pair lift. The top areas of Naeba and their gondolas are closed as well. Yuzawa Kogen seemed to open a bit late as well and we can expect some lifts to be moving at slower than usual because of the wind.

The snow is still coming down good and might well continue into tomorrow. But some local forecasts have conditions clearing and calming down by tomorrow morning and it possibly turning into a fine day. Monday onwards we are looking at a run of days when snow is likely.

Fine conditions out there this morning, hope you can enjoy them.
