Good morning from Yuzawa and here's something to cheer you up on this Monday morning:

A chance to win a lift ticket voucher that is valid at any one of the resorts in the Yuzawa region!

Sugoi!

And on to the report, which is not quite as exciting...

Unfortunately, we did not escape the rain and we are being rained on this morning here in town.

The good news is that it is snowing as you just get a bit higher up than town level, and I am hearing there's over 5cm of fresh already up by Naeba, and Kagura are reporting 5cm as of 7am. So as it gets colder this morning we can hope it will soon be snowing down to town level soon. And the better still news is that snow is forecast over the next few days at least so we should be able to recover from this rain pretty quickly.

I should be able to bring you news of fresh snow in my report tomorrow.

In the meantime, this morning I would head up high for that bit of fresh snow and better conditions...
