And it was a great morning yesterday. A few clouds popped up at times in the morning but for the most part clear blue skies and lots of sunshine.

During the afternoon the clouds did start to properly cover the sky and after a short bit of rain it quickly turned into snow in the evening.

And this morning I have 28cm of snow to report from ground... and if it carries on snowing like it is now, there will be a fair bit more during the day today. It is a cold morning too, which is a fair contrast to yesterday morning too.

Here is what resorts are reporting:

Kagura: 30cm
Maiko Snow Resort: 30cm

Sounds like about 30cm then!

It was very windy overnight - woke me up sometime around 3am - and this morning wind may affect some resorts. At the time of writing, the Tashiro area of Kagura and the Kagura Number 4 and 5 lifts are on hold due to the wind. Mitsumata to Kagura Number 1 lift is open. Subject to change with the weather conditions of course.

GALA Yuzawa and all other resorts currently appear to be opening as planned.

The forecast is for snow to continue through the day; heavy at times and stronger winds at times. And into tomorrow too, so I should be reporting a decent amount of fresh snow again in my next report.

Let's full reset!
