Morning from Yuzawa.

Some fresh snow this morning. Not really around town, but higher up; here's the numbers:

Kagura (main area): 15cm
Kagura (Mitsumata): 10cm
Kagura (Tashiro): 5cm
Maiko Snow Resort: 10cm (presumably top)

So it looks like we can expect around 5-15cm of fresh snow on higher course areas this morning.

Yesterday it was raining in town in the afternoon though just slightly above town it was sleet or wet snow.

It is snowing now - wet snow - and not really the kind that is going to give us any cm on the roads... though fingers crossed there will be some more higher up on the slopes. Snow clouds are forecast to be over the area during today and overnight. Currently it is not raining or snowing just to the north of Yuzawa.

Clearer skies are expected from tomorrow and over the weekend.

Resorts on weekdays are much quieter now, though weekends will still probably be quite busy.

Happily this season we aren't struggling for snow this March and resorts will likely all be able to remain open for as long as they originally planned.
