Yesterday things did clear up eventually in the afternoon and it turned out to be a fine evening. Very cold overnight though and early on this morning the sun was out and bright blue skies all around Yuzawa and Minamiuonuma. While it did start off very cold it has become milder quite quickly and right now is about +3 degrees out there. Clouds started forming over the region a short while back and things are starting to quickly look much greyer as we approach lunchtime, starting to the north and soon Yuzawa should also be covered in cloud.

The slopes have generally been relatively quiet up until now but from today more people are going to be starting their New Year holidays and so we can expect things to start getting busier. A quick look round the resorts around town though and it doesn't look like the slopes are particularly busy for the moment. I would say surprisingly not busy actually.

Anyway, later on we should get snow - there's even a chance it might be rain in town, hopefully not of course - but it shouldn't be like the kind of snowfall we saw over Christmas. It should be a relatively calm New Year with some forecasts telling us to expect some snow showers and others saying glimpses of the sun. Let's hope things stay cold... snow conditions out there are generally really great, let's keep it that way!
