Yesterday was another day of sun but actually it did cloud over somewhat in the afternoon. No rain or snow overnight as we were saying might be possible last night and just cloudy now and a temperature of 3 early on. The forecast is still calling for rain/light snow higher up today, before clearing up for a fairly clear weekend. Things are shaping up to give us some light snowfall as we enter March - so lets hope that March brings with it a return to more winter-like conditions.

There's a bit of news to pass on today actually. Yesterday afternoon at just before 1:30pm, there was a large snow slide within the boundaries of Naeba ski resort. All this warm weather has obviously affected the snow stability out there. Luckily the resort had cordened off the small area around the Riesen Course from Monday as they seemed to deem it not safe - and correct they were. There's not a large part of that course where the earth is visible as the snow has just shunted down the hill. Luckily no-one was involved in this incident and the resort is open as normal this morning - apart from that course of course.

Evening update:

A bit of an update before the weekend.... not the best of news really. It has been raining since this morning here in Yuzawa. Just lightly at first but pretty heavy at times this morning so it all feels a bit wet at the moment and won't have done the snow many favours. Hopefully it will turn into snow at least higher up on the slopes overnight and we have a up to 5-10cm likely before tomorrow morning. Like I said whether that will be down to town level is an unknown we will just have to wait and see.

It should all clear up though soon enough as tomorrow the forecast is for sun and clear conditions. Shouldn't get too warm though with a high of around +2 in town.

Other news to report is that the Kagura No 5 pair lift, the one that goes up beyond the top quad lift and is not usually open during the peak season, will be starting to operate from tomorrow. There's some cool terrain to explore from that lift so get there early tomorrow for some early tracks.
