Morning.

A sunny day yesterday and a real feel of spring in the air. I was out on the slopes in the afternoon and the sun had softened up the snow.

This morning there's a mix of weather already. From light rain and wet roads, to a dusting of snow higher up and now even a bit of sunshine just to the north of Yuzawa.

Kagura resort is reporting up to 3cm of snow higher up and I note that Maiko Snow Resort are also mentioning a light dusting... though none to report from down in town.

It didn't get cold overnight and it is going to be warming up to around 8C later today with these mild conditions expected to continue tomorrow - bit colder again on Friday - and then warming up to Sunday.

Looks like strong winds are forecast for later in the day today and GALA Yuzawa are mentioning that, saying that there is a chance the wind might affect lift operations. Best to check with them if you are planning on being there.

The (66th) Yuzawa Snow Festival is this coming Saturday, 3rd March. Events are held by the Nunoba ski hill near Yuzawa Ropeway on the West side of Echigo Station and begin at 6pm. Expect snow related fun, torch-lit skiing, 'Miss Komako' and fireworks and more.
