It's a wet Saturday morning here in Yuzawa, though Kagura are reporting some light snow. Having said that, it actually feels like it is brightening up a little as this report is being written.

The forecast is still promising snow today with the most due later tonight and overnight into tomorrow. We'll have to wait and see just how much that might be. Beyond tomorrow morning the forecast isn't looking very snowy, and rather mild.

Patience required!

Kagura is opening at 7:30am for the weekend - their Number 1 romance pair lift is also scheduled to be operating for the weekend.
