Very good news this morning as winter returns.

Kagura is reporting a whopping 50cm of fresh snowfall on it's upper slopes this morning! Bit of a surprise that one, at least so much. Strong winds up there though mean that this morning there are some restricted operations up there - Mitsumata Ropeway to the Kagura No 1 pair lift and Tashiro Ropeway to the Tashiro No1 quad lift areas are open. (I know the official snow depth hasn't changed, but the 50cm of fresh snow is correct!)

Kagura will have no doubt got the most new snow but expect decent amounts on the slopes of other resorts around town as well this morning.

Yesterday afternoon there was about 5cm of snow on the car by 4pm as the snow was coming down for most of the day after a weak start, and overnight there has perhaps been another 20-30cm or so in the town area. It is continuing to snow as well now and the forecast actually has another healthy amount of snow falling in the region over the coming 24 hours (30cm average with a maximum of 70cm!) So this is all very good news and lets hope that this cold front brings as much new snow as possible.

So conditions out there today will be back to good with this new layer of snow and hopefully better tomorrow and Friday as this snow continues.

Evening update:

It's great to be able to report the current winter conditions so here's an update.

The snow has been coming down all day here in Yuzawa - stronger at times than others - but by 5pm there was 20cm or so of new snow on the car (since 10am this morning). It is currently -3 degrees in town.

The Niigata local forecast tell us to expect between 20-30cm more snow between now and 9am this morning, so it is going to continue snowing through the night and actually snow is on the forecast for tomorrow as well.

Looks like after that we are going to see clearer conditions over the weekend so perfect timing for those looking for a blast of peak-season snow conditions this coming weekend.

Very nice.
