A bit unexpected this morning really. While high up at Kagura they are saying that they got 10-20cm of new snow since yesterday, down in town there's really nothing to show and while we did get some strong winds during the night, it all seems fairly calm right now. There's even a bit of sunlight shining through from time to time but to the north some much greyer looking clouds are apparently moving in and we are due for that snow to be with us soon. Heavy snow, according to the updated forecast. It perhaps just got delayed a bit on the way. With the forecasts telling us that the peak was going to be today and tomorrow, it just seems a little odd..... but my guess would be that it should be snowing before very long.

Wind only seems to be affecting some operations at Mt Naeba this morning.

I'll post another report this evening with an update.

Evening update

The snow clouds did move in mid morning and it has been snowing since. Not really a lot to report as of now, but the local Niigata forecast tells us here in the Yuzawa area to expect 'up to 60cm' of snowfall overnight before 9am tomorrow morning. So sounds like they are pretty confident of snow overnight then! See you on the other side.
