It's another decent delivery of snow to report this morning after snow on and off during the day yesterday and overnight.

There's 25cm of snow outside my home and top of the car.

Kagura report 40cm.
Naeba report 30-50cm.
Maiko Snow Report report 20-30cm.

It has been snowing lightly early on but the snowfall is expected to ease off during the day today. I have just come back to Yuzawa from the Muikamachi area of Minamiuonuma, where there was a few nearly-clearings in the clouds where you could almost see the blue sky behind the thin cloud. Thicker cloud over Yuzawa at the moment though still. But maybe it will clear fairly quickly and we'll have a fine day. Current temperature -2 degrees.

Whatever happens today, tomorrow is set to be clear and a bit warmer from the start of the day.

All resorts now open in the area - today marks the first day for the famous Mt Granview!

I have also added night skiing 'nighta' information for the area on the report below, and will keep that there each day.
