After the fine sunny weather of yesterday, this morning is a bit of a change with that grey/white look of complete cloud cover. Snow is forecast and indeed falling now at Naeba and Kagura, but down at town level it hasn't started yet... but hopefully it will be with us soon. What we do have early on is some fairly strong winds in town that means that Gala Yuzawa and Yuzawa Kogen are not open this morning, though Kagura currently seems unaffected.

Snow on the forecast for the weekend into next week and we'll update this page this evening with the latest for the weekend...

Nighta tonight is at the following resorts in Yuzawa:

PM update:

It has been a fairly mild day with the temperature reaching +5 degrees this afternoon but the snow clouds were doing there thing higher up (Naeba, Kagura and down to Yuzawa Kogen) though not dumping a huge amount of snow - not much more than a sprinkling really. It has held off all day down at town level and this evening is still fairly mild at about 2 degrees currently.

Snow is forecast overnight though and it should be snowing later tonight. The forecast is for snow right through tomorrow, all the way through Sunday and more of the same on Monday as well. Weekend skiers and snowboarders may not be wanting snow storms while they are out on the slopes, but the snow that we could get would be most welcome. We shall see though Sunday is looking like heavier snow than we might expect tomorrow.

10-20cm of snow is forecast between now and tomorrow early morning with up to 40cm of snow between now and tomorrow evening. If that happens and it continue as forecast, we should be seeing lots of happy faces in the region.

Tomorrow morning might be fairly windy early on and if so that may well affect operations at Kagura and other resorts that are usually affected by the winds.
