Good morning from Yuzawa.

Lots more snow again to report this morning.

The fresh snowfall headlines:

Kagura: 70cm
Kagura Mitsumata: 30cm
Kagura Tashiro: 50cm
Naeba: 20cm
Maiko Snow Resort: 40cm

I have measured a fresh 28cm since yesterday morning down at town level.

Summary - very nice top-up of snow from upper slopes down to base with really heavy snow up top.

It is still snowing this morning. Heavier at times than others and the forecast shows things easing off later on today.

Tomorrow is currently forecast to be cloudy with some forecasts showing a chance of sun. With all the fresh new snowfall out on the slopes, it should be a great day.

Less people around now with the New Year holidays over though the upcoming weekend is another very popular weekend of the season due to Monday being a national holiday in Japan.
