Hello from Yuzawa.

It's just after 9am and it looks like the clouds of the early morning might be starting to clear a little. There's even a bit of sunshine starting to break through in places. Just a short while ago though there was some very (very) light snow falling. So, kind of changeable conditions this morning. There is a light dusting of snow in places down in town areas, and there's a fresh thin coating of snow on the lower slopes around town.

This morning Kagura is reporting 3cm of fresh snowfall in the Mitsumata area and 5cm at the Kagura area. From the webcam it looks rather cloudy/foggy still up there though.

One more week to go before the opening of Naeba, the Tashiro area of Kagura. Iwappara and Joetsu Kokusai will also be on stand-by next Saturday... very little snow in those areas at the moment, let's see how things develop over the next week. Keep an eye on the forecasts (top tab and links on the right hand side of this page).

Tomorrow looks set to be mild, clear and sunny.

Have a fun Saturday.
