Yesterday the wind was really quite strong at times and I wouldn't be surprised if there was more lift stoppages around the region than just those reported early morning. By late afternoon rain has started falling and it was pretty heavy at times in the evening. Last time I looked last night it was sleet falling and a thin white layer on the ground.

I was in Yuzawa just a short while ago but back in Minamiuonuma now where there'a just 2cm of snow on the top of the cars that have been parked overnight. There has been more snowfall in Yuzawa, about 10cm in places, and both Kagura and Maiko Snow Resort this morning are reporting 20cm of fresh snow.

The snow is pretty wet and heavy here so hopefully lighter as you get up higher on the mountains. Definitely worth checking out though I'd say.

There's a bit of blue sky over Minamiuonuma now but lots of cloud still hanging over Yuzawa. The forecast is just for cloudy skies for the day but if here is anything to go by it might end up being a fine day.

Moderate winds again this morning, though northerly this time. Tashiro is going to be closed again today and Kagura only open from Mitsumata Ropeway to Kagura Number 1 Romance lift - they might open more if the winds die down.

Other than that places seem to be going to open normally. GALA Yuzawa will be open.

Tomorrow might get warmer again with clear and sunny skies possible.
