Hello and welcome back to the Yuzawa Now reports.

It doesn't seem that long ago when the season was ending but now with just 6 weeks to go until Kagura plans to open for the season, all thoughts are back on winter again. (Were they ever anywhere else?)

Since that last report the Fuji Rock Festival came and went, and then we had a hot and sometimes very wet summer. September saw a lot of rain as well, with temperatures that certainly felt lower than usual. Summer didn't linger this year. The last week or so we have had some fine weather conditions and hopefully over the next month we will be able to enjoy some fine autumn weather. Here's to some fantastic autumn colours this year.

If you have not seen it yet, do take a look at the new Travel section on SnowJapan. It's over 100 pages of travel details covering many of the most popular ski and snowboard regions of Japan - including Yuzawa of course. Here it is:
