It is snowing in Yuzawa this morning. It's not really sticking as I write this but it is coming down and the forecast for the day is now snow - so come on!!

Kagura aren't reporting any snow on the slopes this morning, but they are opening up more of their resort. The Kagura <> Tashiro linking course is now open, meaning that now a large part of the Kagura Area and Tashiro Area of the Kagura resort is now open. With 60cm as the official snow depth, it's not that deep yet of course, but good to see things opening up. Only really the Mitsumata Area of Kagura remains closed now and you still need to get the bus from the top station of the Mitsumata Ropeway over to the Kagura Gondola.

At Naeba, the Daishamen course has opened from today with the pair lift servicing that run - you still can't ski down to the base of the resort as there isn't enough snow yet.... it remains thin on the ground on the lower slopes of the resort.

After the snow of today Sunday looks set to be clear and sunny though it will still likely remain cold. Look to Tuesday/Wednesday for the next snowfalls - and fingers crossed it will bring more to get town level resorts able to open up.

Today, there were a fair few resorts in the area planning on opening up, but of course they can't as yet. So it's all standby now really with fingers crossed.

Recap - what's open:
- part of Naeba
- most of Tashiro/Kagura areas
- one run at Gala Yuzawa
