Happy New Year.

Good morning from Yuzawa.

What a few days it has been!

Yesterday another 35+cm of snow fell by evening time and this morning there's another 15cm on top of that (which is actually not as much as the forecasts told us to expect). The only new snowfall number we can find this morning from a ski area is Maiko Snow Resort, reporting 40cm of fresh.

This morning a number of ski areas are affected by windy conditions. All of Kagura is completely closed and parts of Naeba are also closed. Other lifts affecting at various ski areas, including at Yuzawa Kogen, Iwappara, Ishiuchi and Maiko. Lower lifts are the more likely to be moving this morning for people happy to brave the current conditions.

In new 'opening' news, the downhill course at GALA Yuzawa, Falcon, is now open.

This snow storm is due to ease as the day progresses, and tomorrow should be calmer and much brighter. The sun might make a special appearance. That's not due to last long though with more snow coming soon after...
