Morning from Yuzawa.

It's a bit dull this morning with lots of grey cloud... and fog by the looks of things in some higher areas. Temperatures around 6C at the moment.

A few spots of rain as well at the moment which we weren't expecting but hopefully that will stop soon and there'll be some sunny skies to enjoy later on.

Naeba re-opens today and tomorrow once again and they have their Number 2 gondola and one upper pair lift moving - you can still ski back down to base there.

Kagura, GALA Yuzawa and Kandatsu Kogen all opening as planned.

Fine weather is on the forecast for tomorrow.
