The forecast last night was for up to 50cm of new snow in mountainous areas, and Kagura are saying they got about 30-40cm overnight. There hasn't been as much down in town - maybe 15cm or so - but the main roads including Route 17 - still have a white covering over them and the diggers are all out busy clearing things up as best they can. It is snowing quite hard in Yuzawa at the moment though and looks pretty much set for the day so we can expect some more cm during the day.

We might see a break in the snowfall tomorrow, and we may even get to see the sun. Things should keep cold though into new year with perhaps a few more light snowfalls just before we get into New Year weekend.

Reports from around the resorts are pretty much of great snow conditions everywhere. As is so often the case in Yuzawa, once things get started properly the snow really does fall in impressive quantities.

Amongst all the excitement of lots of snow, there's some very sad news to bring this morning as well. Someone died yesterday on one of the courses of the Kandatsu Kogen resort in Yuzawa. Apparently the snowboarder was on one of the more advanced courses, fell over and basically got buried in all of the light snow and ultimately died of suffocation after being taken to hospital. Very sad to hear things like this but something to remember. It can get dangerous really quickly especially when so much snow falls so quickly. Do take care out there.
