This morning it has started just cloudy in Yuzawa. The mountains are visible this morning and that snowline has moved ever so slightly down the hill since yesterday. It's looking sunny up at Kagura which has benefited more from the snow at higher levels yesterday. They are opening up the quad lift this morning for the firsrt time this season.

There's snow up at Gala Yuzawa now as well so that one course they have open for their "pre-open" season will be a snowy one this morning.

Looking forward, after a few days of mixed weather, the forecast for Sunday is looking the most promising right now with a chance of some "heavy snow" on the menu for then. We shall see.
