Good morning from Yuzawa.

The snow is just about easing off now after a day and night of on-off snowfall.

It's difficult to put a number on what has fallen since yesterday because there were times when it was falling and building up a few cm, then it disappeared, then it started again. With 2cm on the ground this morning I would say that 6cm is probably a fair representation of what has fallen since my last report.

Here is what the resorts are reporting this morning:

Kagura: 10cm
Maiko: 5-10cm

So there's another layer out there to play in this weekend.

There's a lot of cloud around still now but the forecast is for clearer skies and sunshine and so perhaps it will be quickly changing from now.

It should be a good weekend, especially higher up and definitely very good for the date - amazing that some of the official snow depths are still going up!

Oh yes - some are stuck on what they have been for a long time regardless of fresh snow or melt, and some go down... hey, take it out with the resorts, ok? ;)
