Good morning from Yuzawa and here we are in February already.

Many resorts have about two more months to go but with Kagura usually opening until late May, we have a long way to go. Though it would be nice if time slowed down a bit!

Anyway. It was a very fine morning yesterday with the sun out and blue skies. The clouds that been hanging around to the north slowly started to move in and by afternoon it had become more cloudy over Yuzawa.

This morning there's a slight dusting of snow in places but not enough to register on the numbers this morning. The day is starting off cloudy - might there be some light snow in the day? It kind of feels like it just now...

Maybe more of a chance of clearer skies during the day tomorrow, with slightly milder conditions expected.

Looking ahead, the forecast is looking good for more fresh snow from the weekend and into next week.

I'll take a look back at the season up until now in the report tomorrow.
