Good morning from Yuzawa.

More snow to report since yesterday. Kagura are reporting 15-20cm of fresh snowfall while Maiko Snow Resort are reporting 15cm; I can also add an observed 15cm to the reports.

Things have generally calmed down somewhat since the peak of this snow and we have lots of cloud around at the moment. Snow could be falling any time during the day today and possibly tomorrow too. The next chance of much clearer skies and sunshine seems to be - appropriately enough - Sunday, but we're expecting snow once again from Monday.

The heavy snowfall over the last few days has really given resorts - and visitors of course - what they want and need... a good base with regular snow falling on top. Long may that continue!

Yuzawa is continuing to get busier now as the New Year weekend approaches.

Unless noted below, all of the ski resorts in Yuzawa and Minamiuonuma are now pretty much open as normal and so we have slimmed down the information in the resort specific list below. We will continue to keep an eye on details every morning and post anything significant.

Have a good day wherever you are.
