We start the day in Yuzawa again with lots of beautiful blue sky and some cloud, with the sun shining down on us.

It is a fine and fairly mild start to the day, and things are set to warm up to around 8 degrees by early afternoon. It should be getting colder again tonight though and snow should be falling overnight and also over the weekend.

We're coming to that stage now where we need to get into the serious business of lots of snow falling - enough of the uncertain early season faffing about! - and hopefully this weekend will deliver something.

As reported yesterday, Kagura is planning on being 'fully open' from tomorrow - that includes all three Mitsumata, Tashiro and Kagura areas - and Naeba is planning on being part open from tomorrow as well.

Maiko Snow Resort have announced that they will need to delay their opening and so they join Iwappara and Joetsu Kokusai. These resorts are now on stand-by and will open as soon as there is enough snow.

Soon please!
