Good morning from Yuzawa.

More snow to report as we approach the end of 2017. Here is what the 'resorts that report' have reported this morning:

Kagura: 40cm
Kagura Mitsumata: 25cm
Kagura Tashiro: 40cm
Naeba: 30cm
Maiko Snow Resort: 20cm

And I am measuring 19cm myself. Nice.

It has shaped up to be a really good end to the year, with an equally very good start to 2018 on the cards if the forecasts are correct. A pretty big contrast to how things were last season; in a good way!

It's very cloudy and rather dark this morning with fog in places. Light snow perhaps during the day today and it looks like there is a very good chance of sunshine during the day tomorrow. It should be warming up a little tomorrow as well. Not to worry though as a return to colder temperatures and further decent snowfall is on the forecast from later on in the day on Monday.

Early in January we'll take a look back at the season so far and also compare with the last few seasons.

The top lift at Kagura will be opening for the season from tomorrow.
