Good news from Yuzawa this morning as snow has been falling the second half of yesterday. There hasn't been a huge amount on the ground and resorts around town have been reporting between 5cm and 15cm of new snowfall. With the cold temperature (-4C) and the snow coming down nicely now we can hope for some decent snowfall today. The local Niigata forecast is saying up to 20cm before 4pm today and then the snow is set to continue into tomorrow.

The new layer of snow is very welcome and covering up what had become quite icy conditions on many runs around town. The deeper the better. We may well see clearer conditions over the weekend and so we need as much snow as possible today and tomorrow!

Poor visibility around town and on the resorts.

Evening edit:

This is more like Yuzawa kind of snowing!

We have had some very nice heavy snow falling in the region today and I'd say we have probably over 30cm now in this storm with more on the forecast. The latest forecast published by Niigata Prefecture has us down for up to 50cm of snow from this evening through until tomorrow morning in both the Yuzawa and Minamiuonuma regions. It will stay cold and very likely that the snow will continue tomorrow as well, before easing off for the weekend.

Saturday is currently forecast to be more mild and we might see clear sunny skies.

Conditions should be fantastic out tomorrow if you can brave the potentially wild conditions - hopefully wind won't mess around with lift operations, looks like things should be ok - and Saturday should be great too. If you choose Saturday, try to get out as early as possible to avoid the inevitable powder crowds. Not that you need telling that!
