Good morning.

So we got more snow yesterday morning and it gradually eased off during the day. By evening there were clearer skies, and this morning we have beautiful clear skies over Yuzawa. It looks like there's some wind out there, but not enough to affect resort operations and otherwise it should be an excellent morning. (While the forecast on our site is spot on, some local forecasts have 'cloud' for this morning and then snow again by late afternoon; though they are certainly wrong with the former part of that! The clouds seem to be lingering over the northern part of Minamiuonuma, but leaving our region out for now).

Maiko Snow Resort aren't reporting any fresh snow, but that's 'from last night'... we got snow during the day which is what I am recording below. I don't have any early numbers from Kagura or Ishiuchi Maruyama either this morning.

We are expecting possibly clearer and calmer weather conditions tomorrow and Friday too, with snow likely to return from the weekend.

The last week has seen a very large amount of snow arrive which has really built up the base. What would be great now is regular topups with some days like today dotted in between!
