Cloudy start to this Sunday morning as we enter March. A mild (I'm using that word too much aren't I, sorry!) 3 degrees now which is pretty much what it was through last night. Some strong winds as well at times, even woke me up at one time.

Yesterday was a fine day weather wise. Conditions nicer in the morning with that fresh snow to enjoy, a bit heavier work in the afternoon.

Today it's cloudy forecast for the morning with some rain forecast for later on which will very hopefully turn into snow by the end of the day.

Moderate to strong southerly winds are going to be a feature of today too, and already I can see that over at Kagura only the Mitsumata area is going to be open (ie none of Tashiro or the main central part of Kagura).

GALA Yuzawa is also unfortunately going to be closed today due to the wind conditions.

As far as I can tell as of 8am other resort areas will be open as normal.

Hopefully some good news on the snow front to report tomorrow morning.

If you take a look at the statistics gathered towards the bottom of this page you'll noticed a few interesting things.

First of all, at the end of February 2014 (last season), we had observed 637cm. At the end of February 2015, we had observed 1202cm. Same people, same place. That's one heck of a difference! You'll also see how we have observed more in each month from December. And December really made the biggest difference, with over 4 times the amount of last season. That was one impressive start to the season this time round!

Last season we observed 191cm additional snowfall at base in March, so hopefully we might get to see a similar amount (or preferably more of course) this month. The last week or two has really felt generally spring-like, so here's to some more blasts of winter this month.
