Good morning christmas greetings from Yuzawa. Santa didn't bring us the huge amounts of snow we were hoping for this Christmas Day as Yuzawa remains non-white, at town level anyway. Of course Kagura and Naeba are still open and all the skiing Santas will all be up there today.

No snow overnight and it looks like it will be a fine morning. All thoughts turn to tonight though and the promised snowfall. It's still on and it looks like we should be seeing the first snow fall before this evening and then hopefully heavy snow overnight and into tomorrow and the weekend. Let it snow!

We'll update this page later on tonight with the latest.



Well, it's raining right now (* already snowing up at Kagura) and very wet after a cloudy day. But don't worry.... the snow is most definitely on it's way and hopefully when we all wake up tomorrow morning we will be faced with lots of snow on the ground, strong winds and blizzard-like conditions.

Temperatures for the daytime tomorrow are set to stay below zero at around -3 degrees with strong winds blowing around as well.

Get this --- according to the local Niigata news just now, up to 90cm (NINETY) of snow is forecast between now and this time tomorrow with up to 50cm forecast to fall between now and tomorrow at 9am. While trying to not get too excited, if we actually do get that amount of snow then the resorts in the area will at last be able to open up this weekend (surely) and the season will really be able to kick off in style.

It's worth remembering that they call it as 'up to...', but whatever we do get it does seem highly likely that we will get a decent amount of snow in the next 24 hours.

Fingers crossed everyone!
