Yesterday things really changed quickly. Blue skies opened up in the morning but by around 11am, while still fine and sunny, grey clouds started to appear and by early afternoon we were getting quite a bit of cloud cover. By late afternoon it was snowing again!

This morning I had about 10cm of snow on the top of my car. It wasn't actually in Yuzawa, but Minamiuonuma just to the north. I'm in Yuzawa now and would say that it's about the same here, maybe slightly more. Resorts are reporting a bit more than that though with the most unsurprisingly being reported at Kagura who say they have a fresh 30cm of snow this morning.

Right now it's.... snowing again! A little earlier it was easing off but right now coming down quite hard and visibility looks poor on the slopes even around town. The only signigicant resort news this morning seems to be that the Dragondola connecting Naeba with Tashiro is not operating. Apparently, winds are affecting that but they may well soon re-open. Other than that and a few courses at Naeba, it looks like it is open as usual.

Differing forecasts for tomorrow. Some say snow, some say light snow but with a chance of the sun coming out. So we'll just have to wait and see on that but I would guess better than today in terms of what you can see.

So, weekend it is then. And a 3 day weekend as well because Monday is a national holiday in Japan. Snow conditions in Yuzawa are really great and there's lots of it. All resorts on the list below now reporting over 2m of snow. What more could we want.
