Snow was coming down once again most of yesterday with another 20cm or so to clear off the car last night. Oh yes, and another 20cm or so this morning as well! Kagura is reporting 50cm since yesterday as well.

This morning, it was snowing just earlier on, but as I write this report we are actually experiencing a bit of a break from snow and I can even see some small patches of blue sky up there to the north over Minamiuonuma. A look round at the webcams though and upper slopes at places like Kagura and Naeba are still shrouded in snow clouds and indeed it looks like it is still snowing up at the top of Ishiuchi Maruyama and Gala Yuzawa.

If the forecast is to be believed, we should be seeing more snowfall through today and as I have been mentioning it should continue through until the end of the week with potentially heavy snow to fall once again especially tomorrow and Wednesday.

All through this latest snow storm though, interestingly, the winds haven't been too much of a problem generally which is obviously a good thing. But it does look like winds are affecting Kagura today with that resort only open from Mitsumata Ropeway to the No1 quad lift at Kagura, and Tashiro closed for the day. The good news there is that Kagura have fixed up that electrical problem that was affecting some facilities up there.

Since I started writing this report that blue sky I mentioned has been covered in cloud.
