Good morning from Yuzawa.

We enjoyed more snowfall through most of the day yesterday (and yes, we did get a few short periods where it backed off like the day before) and it was snowing pretty good for most of the day.

Since my report yesterday morning there has been another 14cm of snowfall down here by my base. Interestingly, once again resorts are if anything under-reporting with just 5cm from both Kagura and Maiko this morning. You'd think they'd want to shout out about the better actual numbers - of course, we don't want anyone to be 'lying' about conditions, that's not cool...

So this morning, just like the forecast told us to expect, we have beautiful almost clear blue skies from early on. There's just a bit of cloud about, and quite a bit to the north of Minamiuonuma still but it looks like it is going to be a really great morning to be strapped to the skis or board.

We're good for time being, but there's not much snow lined up on the 6-day forecast currently with the best chance of the next (decent) snow being around Saturday. Before then, we can probably expect some sun and temperatures warming up a bit. Look out for a chance of rain sometime around Thursday and Friday at town level. Let's hope we can avoid that.

By Saturday with that expected snow it should be getting colder once again.

I haven't been out myself the last few days but heard from friends about some great conditions at Kagura, GALA and Kandatsu the last few days which is good to hear. I'll be checking myself today.
