Good morning from Yuzawa and Merry Christmas!

It's a White Christmas too, with snow coming down very nicely at the moment.

First of all back to yesterday. Those early morning clouds lightened up and by mid morning there was some blue sky around and for a few hours before noon we enjoyed lots of sun and lots of blue sky. Lovely morning it turned out to be, and not cold either. The sun softened up the snow a bit too. More cloud just after lunch but it stayed generally fine for the day.

The photos on the report this morning were taken yesterday morning at the Joetsu Kokusai resort in Minamiuonuma.

So back to this morning and there's around 15cm or so of fresh snow on the top of my car.

Kagura reporting 30cm.
Naeba reporting 10-20cm.
Maiko Snow Resort reporting 20cm.

(By the way, someone asked why we only report the 'new snowfall' for a few resorts. Basically we want to post any useful information that we can find. Unfortunately lots of resorts don't mention the new snowfall every morning. If the info is available, we'll post it... as simple as that!)

It's not too cold, in town at least hovering around zero, and so definitely colder than yesterday. The forecast for today and tomorrow is basically... snow.

Once we get into the weekend some clearer skies are due and milder conditions as well.

Just to remind Kagura fans that the too Kagura Number 1 Romance pair lift will be starting up for the season on New Years Day. Sounds good to me.

Fresh snow, so it should be good out there today.
