So yesterday started off with lovely clear skies and mid morning there were some deep blues to enjoy, though quite quickly things changed and by lunchtime it was still bright but overcast. As it got darker the skies were very grey. Amazing sometimes how quickly it can change.

I have heard reports of rain in nearby areas, but when I was out at 8pm last night it was still just cloudy so can't confirm if we got rained on after that!

This morning we woke to just a dusting of snow really, with the most (5cm) being reported by Kagura.

At the moment in Yuzawa it is just 0 degrees with light wet snow falling. A light wind but more wind higher up and windier conditions due later in the day and tomorrow too.

Resorts are almost all open but really we are on less snow than usual I would say. I noticed in the Nozawa Now report today there was a comparison with last year so let's take a look on here too.

27th December 2012:
Naeba - 120cm
Kagura - 250cm
GALA Yuzawa - 190cm
Iwappara - 140cm
Yuzawa Kogen - 150cm
Maiko Snow Resort - 180cm
Joetsu Kokusai - 150cm

Today:
Naeba - 110cm
Kagura - 220cm
GALA Yuzawa - 180cm
Iwappara - 90cm
Yuzawa Kogen - 110cm
Maiko Snow Resort - 115cm
Joetsu Kokusai - 80cm

These are all the numbers reported by the resorts themselves and so comparable year on year. So they are all on less snow than last year - with some much less. It's quite clear though as there isn't that much snow around town at the moment.

Hopefully we'll get snowed on good in this next week into New Year.

(PS Mt Granview opens tomorrow!)
