Good morning from Yuzawa.

After putting up with quite a lot of rain and wet yesterday here at town level, it is very nice to be able to report a good layer of fresh snow on the ground - and snow still falling this morning, and forecast for the day.

Here's how much fresh snow is being reported:

Kagura: 30cm
Maiko Snow Resort: 30cm

I am measuring 22cm.

So yes, it's still snowing and should be through the day but clearing up sometime perhaps late afternoon or evening. Tomorrow we might well get to enjoy a sunny start to the day. The forecast is threatening some rain again before snow comes back on Thursday...

Back to this morning and only the Mitsumata area of Kagura is open - Tashiro is closed for the day and the main Kagura area, or part of it, may open later depending on conditions.

All other ski resorts in Yuzawa and the region appear to be opening as planned this morning.
