Good morning from Yuzawa and I have good news.

With snow falling later in the day yesterday, this morning I have a good 18cm of fresh snow to report from base town area and here is what the ski resorts are reporting themselves:

Kagura (main): 40cm
Kagura Mitsumata: 25cm
Kagura Tashiro: 30cm
Maiko: 20cm

More than I was expecting - always good - and a good reset for this Sunday morning.

It is still snowing now with some nice big flakes falling from the sky and currently just under 0C. The snowfall is not expected to last the morning and to be followed by a cloudy afternoon and a clear evening.

The forecasts are still showing tomorrow to be warmer with temperatures rising up to around 8C in town and rain later on in the day (sun to start off with?). It looks like rain might be with us on Tuesday as well, with that next snow now due around Wednesday. Fingers crossed that rain story is short!
