Now this is more like it. Kagura reporting 20cm and it is snowing pretty good in Yuzawa this morning - it feels like winter.

I'll post more details later on this afternoon.

----

Update:

OK like I said this morning --- this is more like it! It feels like winter and we have seen some decent snowfall today... it's 'snowing well'. There is as much as 40-50cm or so on the top of some cars around town this afternoon. Very nice. Obviously it's great to see Yuzawa-like snowfalls once again - this is really the first decent dump of snow at town level this season really. Things can change quite quickly, as we are seeing now.

This morning Kagura were reporting 20cm of fresh snow, but curiously the official snow depth has not increased - I'm sure we will be seeing some decent changes in snow depth numbers for all resorts in the region come tomorrow morning.

The resorts are of course enjoying this new snow and very quickly opening up areas of their resorts that they were struggling to until now.

At Gala Yuzawa, the South area is open.... the first time in a number of years, so well worth a look.

According to the Yuzawa Town official tourism association data, the only resorts that are not now "fully open" are NASPA Ski Garden and Yuzawa Kogen. My guess is that come tomorrow morning, it will all be fully open.

The forecast? Snow should continue falling for the rest of today and hopefully a good part of tomorrow as well. Snow clouds will likely stick around over the next 5-6 days but Sunday looks best for the next decent snowfall.

I'll bring the latest snow depth data tomorrow morning.

Yuzawa Now ski lift operation notes:

All resorts are now mostly open. More snow is needed to really open up all the runs at all resorts.
